Arsenal misfit Perez set for West Ham move

Perez-Arsenal GETTY Arsenal transfer news Lucas Perez could leave the club on the cheap

Sanchez, who has 88 caps for Colombia, has been a stalwart for his country for over a decade but is perhaps better known on these shores for his two-year stint at Aston Villa between 2014-16.

The 29-year-old has endured a hard spell at Arsenal, spending last year on loan at Deportivo after struggling for football in his first season at the club.

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.

"I'm very excited, as West Ham are giving me the chance to stay in the Premier League and I'm very happy to be part of this new project".

"I'm very happy to be here at such an historic Club", Perez told the club's official website.

The defensive-minded midfielder becomes the ninth player through the door at West Ham during a productive summer window for Manuel Pellegrini.




The Mexico global scored just eight goals in 28 league appearances last season but is looking forward to working with Pellegrini.

However, the striker then opted to return to Deportivo on loan last season in search of more regular first-team football.

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

"I'm very motivated." Perez said.

Not content with having Lucas Perez lined-up, Manuel Pellegrini is also pushing to bolster his side's midfield ranks with the addition of Fiorentina's Carlos Sanchez - who will be remembered for his previous spell at Aston Villa, where he left a lot to be desired.

"Lucas also has experience of the Premier League with Arsenal, and is familiar with life here in London, which of course means that he will take less time to adapt and be ready".
