Lucas Perez

Premier League club West Ham United have agreed on a £2.2m fee with Spanish La Liga side Deportivo Alaves for the transfer of striker Lucas Perez.

According to Sky Sports News, the two clubs have agreed on a deal for Spanish striker Lucas Perez who’s now expected to join Deportivo Alaves in the coming days.

Lucas Perez will leave West Ham United after just one season with the Hammers.

The 30-year-old was previously on the payroll of North London giants Arsenal before he signed for West Ham United.

Lucas Perez had earlier joined the Gunners from Deportivo La Coruna for a fee believed to be around £17m in the summer of 2016.

The Spaniard struggled to make an impact while he was at Arsenal as he scored just once in 11 games of the Premier League.

His sole strike for Arsenal came during the comeback draw with South Coast outfit Bournemouth.

The Gunners came from three goals down to play a 3-3 draw with the Cherries and Lucas Perez was amongst the goalscorers for the North Londoners.

He was sent out on loan back to Deportivo La Coruna for one season before he was sold to London rivals West Ham United by the Gunners last summer in a £4.4m deal.

He scored three goals in 15 Premier League games for the Hammers during the just concluded season.
