Wilshere welcomes former teammate to West Ham

Perez-Arsenal

Perez-Arsenal

Arsenal have announced the departure of Lucas Perez who joins West Ham United on a three-year deal as the gunners continue letting go of players ahead of the new season. West Ham has great fans and plays in an unbelievable stadium, so to sign here brings me great joy. But the Baggies are still hoping they can land the worldwide midfielder with the lure of playing in what could be a very exciting season as they battle for promotion back to the Premier League.

It has been a really busy summer in east London and the 29-year-old Perez becomes West Ham's eighth new signing, as manager Manuel Pellegrini overhauls his squad.

Perez initially arrived in England in 2016, signing from the same club where he spent last season on loan, Deportivo La Coruna, managing a total of 21 appearances for the Gunners during his stay, and scoring seven goals.

Colombia global Sanchez, 32, signed a two-year contract just minutes before the deadline, marking a return to the Premier League after he spent two seasons with Aston Villa from 2014-16.

Musk is already CEO of another private company: SpaceX. Any buy-out would require a shareholder vote. Some on Wall Street shared that view.

Alfredo Pedulla reports that the two teams are both interested in signing the former Aston Villa midfielder as the end of the transfer window looms.

'I'm very happy to be here.

Perez and Sanchez join Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski, Issa Diop, Jack Wilshere, Aindriy Yarmolenko, Fabian Balbuena and Felipe Anderson in moving to the Hammers this summer.

Perez managed to score eight goals in 35 matches for Deportivo who have been relegated into the Segunda division in Spain last season.
