Lucas Perez closing in on West Ham switch

The Spaniard had hoped to win over his compatriot this summer

Perez was signed from Deportivo La Coruna for £17m two years ago but struggled to secure a regular first-team role during his debut campaign at Arsenal.

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.

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

Perez initially arrived in England in 2016, signing from the same club where he spent last season on loan, Deportivo La Coruna, managing a total of 21 appearances for the Gunners during his stay, and scoring seven goals.

'I'd like to thank all of the people, the whole club, for having me'.

Perez's switch to the London Stadium sees him reunited with former Gunners midfielder Jack Wilshere, who joined West Ham following the end of his contract.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed, but local media said West Ham had paid about 4 million pounds for the Spaniard.

The Hammers have been leading the way, with Manuel Pellegrini looking to continue a busy summer of spending.

"I know that West Ham want him and they have made an offer", Lucas's agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle told ESPN FC.

West Ham also sold one player on deadline day, shipping 18-year-old Portuguese midfielder Domingos Quina to Watford.

"His style is different from the other strikers we have available to us, and that gives the manager more options for our attacking play".
