West Ham fans on Twitter buzzing about Perez interest

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini is still looking at bringing in some more attacking players before the transfer window closes on Thursday.

The former Manchester City boss has already signed both Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko for big money earlier in the summer, but still appears keen on bolstering his squad in that area further ahead of deadline day.

And one player who has been linked with the east London club to fulfil Pellegrini’s needs is Arsenal’s Lucas Perez.

Perez, who is valued at £6.7m by Transfermarkt, is said to be a target for the Hammers with Unai Emery willing to listen to offers for the Spaniard (via Daily Mirror).

Perez has not done much at Arsenal since arriving back in the summer of 2016 and spent last season out on loan at his former club Deportivo La Coruna.

The 29-year-old, however, is still a very versatile player and capable goalscorer who could offer much to West Ham going into the new season.

Take a look at what West Ham supporters are saying on Perez’s potential arrival at the London Stadium below…
