Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has expressed regrets that he had been unable to give striker Lucas Perez more games.
Perez has scored eight times in 21 appearances for Arsenal since joining in August.
Wenger said: “He is a top quality striker. I couldn’t give him the games he wants and deserves, and I feel sorry for him.
“Don’t take anything away from his quality. I will love to (keep him) if I am the manager, but we have to sit down together and see if he has a reasonably chance to play or not.”
Arsenal is currently placed sixth in the English Premier League table.
