Report: West Ham chase Gunners striker

Lucas Perez believes Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will continue as Gunners boss

West Ham want  Arsenal’s out of favour striker Lucas Perez.

According to The Mirror the Irons have already made strong enquiries for Perez who is keen to leave the Gunners  after a frustrating first season at the club.

The 28 year old  joined Arsenal last August in a £17m move from Deportivo La Coruna but has failed to hold down a regular starting place and is pushing to go.

That has alerted West Ham who are hoping to get Perez for a similar price with Arsenal and the player’s representatives aware of the interest from their London rivals.
