Three reasons West Ham should steer clear of signing Premier League flop

According to reports in The Times on Tuesday, West Ham United are lining up a move for Arsenal striker Lucas Perez.

The 28-year-old only moved to the Emirates from Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna last summer, but he has found first team opportunities hard to come by and could look to leave the north London outfit at the end of the season.

That news has attracted the attention of Irons boss Slaven Bilic, who is keen to sign a new attacker in the summer because of a lack of goals for his side this term, as well as the continued fitness doubts over Andy Carroll.

The Hammers’ problems are summed up by the fact that Michail Antonio – who has often been deployed out of position at right-back during the current campaign – is their top goalscorer with nine goals.
