Lucas Perez: West Ham sign Spanish striker from Arsenal

Arsenal-Perez

Arsenal have allowed striker Lucas Perez to join West Ham for a reported fee of £5 million. West Ham has great fans and plays in an fantastic stadium, so to sign here brings me great joy.

West Ham United made two further signings on transfer deadline day to take their total summer spending to nearly £100 million, behind only Liverpool, Chelsea and Fulham in the entire Premier League.

Former Arsenal favourite Jack Wilshere revealed the club's capture of Lucas Perez on social media.

The Arsenal supporters won't be that disappointed that Lucas Perez has left the club because the striker has failed to live up to expectations at the club but the blame is put on Arsene Wenger for not giving him enough chances in his first season at the Emirates Stadium two years ago.

Perez joined Arsenal in August 2016 from Deportivo la Coruna but started just two Premier League games for the London club, making another nine appearances off the bench.

"I'm a dreamer", Hernandez told the club website ahead of Sunday's trip to Liverpool.

Football.London states a deal bringing the 32-year-old Colombia global to the London Stadium will be a loan agreement and will fight with Declan Rice and Pedro Obiang for a spot in defensive midfield - so first-team football will not be a guarantee.

However, the striker then opted to return to Deportivo on loan last season in search of more regular first-team football. "I'm very excited and looking forward to achieving lots", said Sanchez, who appeared at his second World Cup with Colombia this summer.

"I'm very motivated." Perez said. The former Chelsea youth player signed a four-year contract with the Hornets.
