Arsenal have announced the departure of Lucas Perez who joins West Ham United on a three-year deal as the gunners continue letting go of players ahead of the new season.

Portuguese outlet A Bola, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the north London side have deemed the 29-year-old to be surplus to requirements at The Emirates as Unai Emery prepares for his first season in charge at the club.

West Ham have confirmed the signing of Colombia worldwide midfielder Carlos Sanchez from Fiorentina. He spent the second half of last season on loan with Espanyol in La Liga.

The Spaniard started just two Premier League matches under former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger and only made a total of 21 appearances before being sent back to La Coruna on loan.

West Ham United are pushing to complete the signing of West Brom target Carlos Sanchez from Fiorentina before the window for Premier League clubs shuts on Thursday. West Ham have great fans and play in an awesome stadium, so to sign here brings me great joy. "I'd like to thank all of the people, the whole club, for having me".

Perez and Sanchez join Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski, Issa Diop, Jack Wilshere, Aindriy Yarmolenko, Fabian Balbuena and Felipe Anderson in moving to the Hammers this summer.

Lucas is happy at Arsenal but he wants to play regularly and West Ham is an option for him.

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