West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini looks on during the pre-season friendly match between Wycombe Wanderers and West Ham United at Adams Park

West Ham United are in talks about a deal for Arsenal forward Lucas Perez, with the player keen on staying in London and the Premier League, the player's agent has told ESPN FC.

"I'm very happy to be here at such a historic club".

West Ham United have endured relegation battles in their last two Premier League campaigns but striker Javier Hernandez says he is dreaming of a top six finish this season.

West Ham have confirmed the signing of Colombia worldwide midfielder Carlos Sanchez from Fiorentina.

Perez's switch to the London Stadium sees him reunited with former Gunners midfielder Jack Wilshere, who joined West Ham following the end of his contract.

Perez arrived at the Olympic Stadium for just £4m - not even a quarter of the £17m the Gunners paid Deportivo la Coruna in 2016.

United States to sanction Russian Federation over Skripal poisoning
The former Russian double agent and his daughter were found unconscious on a bench in the town of Salisbury, England, on March 4. A senior State Department official said it had notified the Kremlin of the sanctions earlier in the day.

"He has great technical quality, and can play as both the main striker or the second striker in a deeper role".

'I'm very happy to be here.

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

"His style is different from the other strikers we have available to us, and that gives the manager more options for our attacking play", Husillos said.

And with new head coach Unai Emery giving him no assurances over playing time, the decision to sell the player was taken, with the Hammers pouncing and thus making him one of the lost list of their arrivals this summer.

This is in view of the fact that Andy Carroll is set to miss West Ham's season opener at Liverpool on Sunday due to injury.
