Agent of Arsenal striker Lucas Perez: West Ham a great option

Goal understands that Perez has undergone a medical at West Ham, while Ospina will hold talks with Turkish giants Besiktas over joining them before the summer transfer window closes.

Head coach Unai Emery said after that match that the club is likely to sell a couple of players this week as they look to trim the squad.

'I'm very excited, as West Ham are giving me the chance to stay in the Premier League and I'm very happy to be part of this new project.

West Ham director of football Mario Husillos added: "He is a very experienced player that Manuel and I both know well from Spain".

Another midfielder reportedly eyed by West Ham before the transfer window slams shut is Chelsea outcast Danny Drinkwater, who has struggled for first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge since his switch from Leicester previous year.

Sanchez's future appears to be away from Fiorentina after spending last season on loan at La Liga side Espanyol.

Perez, who has signed a three-year deal, spent just two years at the Emirates Stadium - one of those out on loan at Deportivo - and scored seven goals in 21 appearances.

Steve Bruce's side are keen on signing Snodgrass on a permanent basis and, although the Guardian states West Ham have no interest in a sale, the promotion hopefuls could lodge a cheeky bid before this afternoon's deadline.

Arsenal have accepted a bid from Sporting Lisbon to sign Lucas Perez this summer, according to reports in the Portuguese media.
