West Ham United have signed Arsenal striker, Lucas Perez, in a deal reportedly worth around £5 million.

Perez signed a three-year contract with the Hammers that sees him reunite with former Arsenal teammate, Jack Wilshere.

“I’m very happy to be here at such an historic club,” Perez told West Ham’s official website.

“I’m very excited, as West Ham are giving me the chance to stay in the Premier League and I’m very happy to be part of this new project.

“West Ham have great fans and play in an amazing stadium, so to sign here brings me great joy. I’m very motivated.”

Perez scored seven goals in 21 appearances for the North London club.

The Spain international was signed by the Emirates club from Deportivo La Coruna for £17m in the summer of 2016.

However, the 29-year-old failed to establish himself as a regular starter for the Gunners.
