Lucas Perez feels “really comfortable” at Arsenal as the Spanish forward looks to propel the Gunners into a strong finish to the season.
Lucas Perez took his tally in English football to seven with the opening goal in Monday’s 2-0 FA Cup fifth-round win at Sutton.
The start at Gander Green Lane, however, was just his ninth in all competitions.
Perez’s representative has played down suggestions the forward – signed for £17m from Deportivo La Coruna in August – may consider his long-term future in the summer.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger accepts Perez is now very much “pushing on the door” for a regular starting place, with the 28-year-old having settled into London life.
“It was still quite a change for me to get used to the English league when I moved here from Spain,” he told Arsenal Player. “Everyone needs some time to adjust.
“Players are all different, so some take longer to adapt than others.
“Now I feel really comfortable and I’ve fitted in well to the team – that’s particularly important for a player.”
