Reports of West Ham's interest in Arsenal outcast Lucas Perez first arose yesterday and things have progressed significantly in the past 24 hours, with a deal now on the verge of completion as we enter the final days of the window.
Perez becomes Manuel Pellegrini's ninth signing of the season as much will be expected from the London club in the new season.
He told the club's official website on the back of sizeable investment under new boss Manuel Pellegrini: "The club is doing well with improvements in all the areas, in the team, but also in all the staff they have brought in with the manager".
Champions League hat-trick aside, Perez never got going for the Gunners after joining from Deportivo la Coruna for £17million, and will therefore undoubtedly retain "flop" statue forever more.
The left-footed forward spent last season on loan at his former club Deportivo La Coruna and scored eight goals in 35 LaLiga appearances, but said he was looking forward to helping West Ham improve on their 2017-18 Premier League finish of 13th.
