Low Cash For Lucas As Perez Moves To The LS In Cut Price Deal

West Ham United have practically stolen striker Lucas Perez from Arsenal for a bargain basement £4 Million rising to £5 Million with add ons. Things went very poorly for Perez following his £17 Million move from Deportivo de La Coruna to the Emirates, so bad were things for the player at Arsenal that he was farmed out for all of last season back at Deportivo on loan!

29 year old Perez has signed a three year contract and joins Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski, Issa Diop, Jack Wilshere, Aindriy Yarmolenko, Fabian Balbuena and Felipe Anderson in moving to the London Stadium during this summer's transfer window. He told the offiicial site whufc.com “I’m very happy to be here at such an historic Club,” he said. “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. West Ham have great fans and play in an amazing stadium, so to sign here brings me great joy. I’m very motivated.”

Director of Football Mario Husillos said of his new acquisition “We welcome Lucas to West Ham United,” he said. “He is a very experienced player that Manuel and I both know well from Spain. He has great technical quality, and can play as both the main striker or the second striker in a deeper role. He scores goals, but can also create them and link well with the midfielders. His style is different from the other strikers we have available to us, and that gives the manager more options for our attacking play. 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. From the very first meeting I had with Lucas, he made it very clear that he wanted to come to West Ham United and, for us, this is very important. We wish him every success during his time here.”

Perez looks as though he may be the final arrival at the London Stadium, but as we write this article there are still over four hours left, after the window closes the only business will be outgoings to European or overseas clubs. - Ed
