Good move to get rid: West Ham fans are pleased with Lucas Perez news

West Ham United announced on Monday evening that Lucas Perez had joined La Liga outfit Alaves on a permanent deal ‘for an undisclosed fee’.

Perez only joined West Ham from Arsenal in last summer’s transfer window, penning a three-year contract with the Hammers.

The 30-year-old managed a respectable six goals in 19 appearances for Manuel Pellegrini’s side during the 2018-19 campaign.

However, the attacker has now been moved on as West Ham prepare for the new season.

And it would be fair to say that the majority of the London club’s fans are pleased that Perez has departed at this early stage of the transfer window.

In fairness to the 5 ft 11 ace, he was not given much of an opportunity to make his mark at the London Stadium.

But the deal does make sense for all involved as Perez has enjoyed previous success in Spanish football.
