Arsenal star Lucas Perez is set to join Premier League side West Ham United after the hammers have shown interest in the Spanish international as the gunners look to cut on their wage budget by letting some players go.
Lucas Perez arrived at the Emirates Stadium in the 2016 summer transfer window and the striker has failed to become a regular at the North London club as the club even decided to let him go on loan last season but he recently returned at Arsenal after the arrival of Unai Emery.
The Mirror claims that the gunners will lose Lucas Perez to West Ham United in this transfer window because the hammers’ boss Manuel Pellegrini wants to get a back up striker for Marko Arnautovic so they will tempt the gunners with a bid soon, Arsenal is expected to accept this bid because the player might be surplus to requirements at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery has shown the players which he will be using on the forward line this season as he has started either Lacazette or Aubameyang in their pre-season matches which clearly shows that Perez has no chance of getting chosen over those two strikers ahead of the new season.
Lucas Perez was linked with a move to Sporting Lisbon yesterday but his agent rubbished those reports as he confirmed that they are not in contact with the Portuguese club as reports had claimed but he is still quiet on the rumours linking his client to West Ham United.
Lucas Perez will now need to be ready to playing once a month if he stays at Arsenal because he will only be used in matches in competitions like the Carabao Cup, FA Cup and maybe the group stage matches of the UEFA Europa League.
