Arsenal striker in the frame?

West Ham are being linked with a move for Arsenal's unsetlled forward Lucas Perez.

28-year-old Perez joined the Gunners last summer in a 17million switch from Spanish side Deportivo but is reported to be looking for a way out already, having failed to break into the first team at the Emirates on a regular basis.




And, so say The Times, West Ham have have lodged an enquiry into Perez's availability with Irons boss Slaven Bilic reported to be an admirer of the Spaniard, who has hit the target eight times in his 22 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions.

It was reported during the last transfer window that an unnamed Chinese club were keen to sign Perez, although the Gunners were said to have instantly rejected a 26million offer - even though that would have represented a near 10m-profit in a matter of months.




Beginning his pro career with Ahletico Madrid's 'C' team, Perez moved on to Rayo Vallecano in 2009 and PAOK in 2013 before making a dream move to his hometown club in July 2014, initially on loan.

After two seasons with the Branquiazuis at Estadio Riazor, he moved to England in August of last summer but has failed to settle - hence West Ham's purported interest.
