Arsenal misfit Perez set for West Ham move

The Spaniard had hoped to win over his compatriot this summer

Fiorentina are looking to offload several players this summer in order to trim their squad and the Colombia worldwide is believed to be on the cull list.

With the Baggies unable to offer Premier League football like West Ham, they would have to convince him to turn down a move to London.

Perez is West Ham's eighth signing under new manager Manuel Pellegrini, joining Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski, Issa Diop, Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko, Fabian Balbuena and Felipe Anderson in making the move to east London.

The 32-year-old midfielder, who has been capped 88 times by Colombia, started his career in Uruguay with River Plate Montevideo before heading to Europe to sign for French side Valenciennes.

Sanchez, who has over 80 caps for his country, spent past year on loan at Espanyol.

Steve Bruce's side are keen on signing Snodgrass on a permanent basis and, although the Guardian states West Ham have no interest in a sale, the promotion hopefuls could lodge a cheeky bid before this afternoon's deadline.

The forward now looks set to complete a move to West Ham in the coming days.

"Listen, it's great first and foremost to come back and see them, but I'm a West Ham player".

Jack Wilshere has posted on his Instagram an image of Lucas Perez in a West Ham United shirt amid reports he is joining from Arsenal. He left for Fiorentina on loan after that relegation and made that move permanent past year.
