Lucas Perez’s nightmare spell at Arsenal has come to an end as he has finalised a move to West Ham United.
The Spaniard failed to cement a regular starting spot at the North London outfit following his 2016 switch from Deportivo La Coruna.
After one season, Perez was shipped out on loan to his former club, where he came second to Lionel Messi in creating the most key passes in La Liga (79).
After discovering that he would continue playing a bit-part role at Arsenal, the striker ended up signing for West Ham on the final day of the transfer window.
The forward penned a four-year contract, and the Hammers lucked out with a deal that cost just £4m, according to The Independent.
Even though Perez has a Premier League record of one goal in 11 top-flight fixtures, West Ham fans are excited about what he can bring to the team this season.
Handfuls of supporters took to Twitter to express their views on the capture.
Massively underrated signing

A steal at that price, I’m hearing that he was only second at assists last season to Messi in LaLiga not sure if it’s true, but very happy Hammer either way
