“I know that he did really well. He’s come here and not played in many games, but I like the player.

It is believed Newcastle are keen to sign Perez on a season-long loan but Arsenal want him to leave the Emirates for good.

“Last year I barely had any opportunities and when I had them I took advantage of them and this season is clearly going to be more of the same.

“I want to fight to go to the national team. I want to play football, but for that I have to leave.

“I cannot continue this way. I have given everything, but that has not been reciprocated, so I can’t stand it any longer. I feel cheated
