West Ham United closing in on capture of Perez, fans react

West Ham United fans have been having a very enjoyable summer due to the mass spending from their club.

The East London outfit have parted with close to £100m to bring in fresh faces.

So far, manager Manuel Pellegrini has brought eight new players through the welcome gates at the London Stadium and it seems that more are coming.

A number of strikers have been linked to the club, including Moussa Marega, and one of the rumoured targets is very familiar to Arsenal fans.

According to Matteo Moretto of Di Marzio, the Hammers are closing in on the signing of Lucas Perez.

The Spaniard has been an Arsenal player since 2016, but he has failed to land a regular spot in the first team.

The 29-year-old has managed just 1 goal in 11 Premier League appearances, but he has a better record in La Liga having netted 32 times.

On Twitter and Reddit, West Ham fans have been discussing Perez’s possible arrival.
