Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Lucas Pérez is not a striker

Pérez not good enough for Arsenal says Wright

Ian Wright is worried Lucas Pérez may not be the striker Arsenal have been crying out for.

Pérez joined the Gunners on deadline day for £17million following an impressive season with Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna.

The 28-year-old scored 17 goals and provided 10 assists in 36 La Liga appearances last term and arrived at the Emirates with high expectations.

However, Gunners legend Wright is worried he may not be the striker Arsenal need following his uninspiring debut against Southampton yesterday.

The former striker analysed Perez’s first game in detail on last night’s Match of the Day and came to the worrying conclusion that he’s not a No.9.

Wright told Match Of The Day:

“Arsenal need a striker.

“I thought we would see someone more direct. Hopefully that will happen.

“It seemed to me that he’s a winger.”
