Lucas Perez sends farewell message to Gunners after West Ham move

Arsenal transfer news

Perez becomes the eighth player to join West Ham ahead of the 2018-19 season, and he will compete with fellow new signing Andriy Yarmolenko for a place in Manuel Pellegrini's starting line-up.

Sanchez spent second half of last season on loan at Espanyol and his contract with Fiorentina expires at the end of next season.

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

West Ham have confirmed the signing of Colombia worldwide midfielder Carlos Sanchez from Fiorentina. He went back to Deportivo on loan last season and was surplus to requirements at the Emirates after the arrivals of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. I'm very excited and looking forward to achieving lots, ' said Sanchez after completing his move.

With the Baggies unable to offer Premier League football like West Ham, they would have to convince him to turn down a move to London.

Deadline day round-up: Kovacic in at Chelsea, all quiet at Manchester United
I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane . It's time just to say "tomorrow we have a Premier League match" and we have to play to win it".

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

"We welcome Lucas to West Ham United".

West Ham director of football Mario Husillos moved for Sanchez following a ringing endorsement from the Colombian manager Jose Pekerman under whom he has reached nearly 100 global caps.

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", Husillos said.
