It was always on the cards that Lucas Perez would not be staying at Arsenal this season, and now the Mirror has confirmed that the 29 year-old has moved to West Ham, who have now signed nearly a full team of new players this summer. The Mirror reports….
West Ham have continued their £100million summer spree by signing Lucas Perez – and will swoop for ‘The Rock’ next.
Arsenal striker Perez, 29, arrives as Manuel Pellegrini’s ninth summer signing.
At a cut-down £4m, Perez will move across to east London to provide competition for Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez.
So Perez has gone, and after selling Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott last season, our stock of strikers has been reduced drastically. If, as is constantly rumoured, we also going to let Danny Welbeck go, then that would leave just Aubameyang, Lacazette and Iwobi as our only recognised attackers. Surely we can’t risk going through the whole season with just those three, unless Nketiah (or Joel Campbell?) are going to be used in our Europa League games?
Should we start worrying now?
