West Ham snap up Lucas Perez from Arsenal, add Carlos Sanchez

Lucas Perez

West Ham United have announced the permanent signing of Lucas Perez from Arsenal for a reported cut-price fee of £4m.

Reports of West Ham's interest in Arsenal outcast Lucas Perez first arose yesterday and things have progressed significantly in the past 24 hours, with a deal now on the verge of completion as we enter the final days of the window.

The 29-year-old striker spent last season on loan at his former side Deportivo La Coruna in Spain, collecting nine goals and eight assists in 37 appearances for the Galician side, after struggling to make an impression in North London.

The striker finally leaves the North Londoners despite many statements by his agent saying that the Spanish global wants to stay at the Emirates Stadium but it is likely that Lucas Perez chose to leave the club because he was afraid that he won't get enough playing time this season under Unai Emery.

Chelsea have slammed the shut the possibility of their superstar Eden Hazard leaving the club for Real Madrid this summer. And it seems Hazard is not going to leave Chelsea this summer as he prepares to return to training with the Blues today.

"Carlos is a very experienced player whose career I have always followed closely and with admiration", West Ham director of football Mario Husillos said.

It appeared as if new Arsenal boss Unai Emery would give the centre-forward a second chance as he included him in the pre-season tour of Singapore but the Spaniard ultimately moved to West Ham with the Gunners taking a huge hit on their £17m outlay. West Ham has great fans and plays in an unbelievable stadium, so to sign here brings me great joy.

West Ham have continued their £100million summer spree by signing Lucas Perez - and will swoop for "The Rock" next. He scores goals, but can also create them and link well with the midfielders.

"I'm very motivated." Perez said.
