The youngster paid tribute to his former club on Twitter after joining the Bundesliga side.
‘Thank you to all the staff and players at Arsenal for the 5 years I was there, but I’m happy to join VfL Wolfsburg.’
Deportivo manager Pepe Mel says Lucas Perez would be welcome back to Deportivo, but the asking price could prove a stumbling block: “Everyone understands that Depor wants Lucas.
“I know Arsenal well, they do not give away anything, especially if they have paid more before.
“I told the president to work hard on plan B, because it will probably be the most feasible. But of course we would be waiting with open arms for Lucas because it would make us a team with many more options.”
On Arsenal’s club record signing: “You’ll love him, but give Lacazette time to settle in – like Bergkamp and Henry.
“Getting Lacazette shows that Arsene Wenger and the club mean business. That’s why I am so excited.
“If Arsene believes he was worth that fee, then the player must have a real talent. And, as a frontman, he is the kind of player the fans love, if he is a success.
“He is the type who can light up the stadium.
“Lacazette comes to Arsenal with a record as a genuine threat after the goals he scored with Lyon.
“I have seen clips of him playing and he certainly knows where the goal is.
“He is mobile and has pace. And there was clearly competition to sign him – and Arsene won that fight.
“Whenever I have seen Lacazette play, he is in the mould of Ian Wright – quick and very dangerous in the penalty area. He has the makings of a great signing.
“It also shows Arsene’s determination to make the squad stronger – and I believe there will be more signings and at least one more big one.”
