Arsenal near deal to sell Lucas Perez to West Ham

Arsenal near deal to sell Lucas Perez to West Ham

West Ham were busy on transfer deadline day, signing striker Lucas Perez from Arsenal and defensive midfielder Carlos Sanchez from Fiorentina on Thursday.

Perez wrote the farewell message on his official Twitter account, saying: "Today I would like to thank Arsenal fans for their support, they always showed me affection and love from the first time I arrived in London".

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

The Spain global was signed by the Emirates club from Deportivo La Coruna for £17m in the summer of 2016.

Sanchez, who has over 80 caps for his country, spent past year on loan at Espanyol.

Sanchez, a 32-year-old holding midfielder, has agreed a two-year contract while Perez, who made only 11 Premier League appearances in two years at Arsenal had agreed a deal until 2021.

Sanchez's future appears to be away from Fiorentina after spending last season on loan at La Liga side Espanyol.

The Hammers found a unique way to announce the signing of Perez as they used their big screens at the London Stadium to unveil the player.

Lucas will play alongside former Gunner Jack Wilshere at the London Stadium.

West Ham director of football Mario Husillos said: "We welcome Lucas to West Ham United".

"Lucas is a very experienced player that Manuel and I both know well from Spain", Husillos said on the club website.
