West Ham completed a deal earlier on deadline day to sign Arsenal forward Lucas Perez.

Arsenal signed Perez from Deportivo La Coruna in 2016 but he struggled for game time at The Emirates.

 

He impressed particularly in his first few months for the Gunners, which saw him score a hat-trick in the Champions League.

The Mirror report West Ham have paid just £4 million for the forward.

The 29-year-old has signed a three year deal with the Hammers.

The deal could prove to be a bargain for West Ham and Perez's departure has caused some frustration among Arsenal fans.

He showed promise despite never getting a proper chance, while other players continue to get opportunities despite failing to seize them, with Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi two names mentioned by supporters.
