Lucas Perez admits following Arsenal since this Spanish flop...

Lucas Perez admits he followed Arsenal from the time Jose Antonio Reyes made the move from Spain.

The Spanish forward was 15 when the Gunners went unbeaten during the 2003/04 Premier League season - and has spoken of his particular respect for one member of that squad.

“Well, obviously everyone knows about Arsenal's legendary players, such as Henry and Bergkamp," he told Arsenal Player. “I really admired Reyes, who's a fellow Spaniard.

“[There's] Pires, Vieira too… that was a wonderful time for Arsenal and everyone knows all those players. People know all about them in Spain and that history of having legends at the club is part of the reason Arsenal are so popular."
