West Ham is an option for unwanted Arsenal forward Lucas Perez this week, according to his agent.

Arsenal outcast Lucas Perez held positive talks with Fiorentina over a move away from The Emirates, according to Sky Italia last week.

Perez is expected to leave the Gunners this summer after struggling to make an impact since his 2016 move from Deportivo La Coruna, with fellow Serie A side Lazio also holding an interest.

Now though West Ham have enquired about the striker and a transfer to another London club may well be tempting for the 29-year-old.

The player’s agent Rodrigo Lovelle told CalcioMercato.com this morning: “West Ham is an option, he might leave [Arsenal].

“West Ham keeps him in London and in the Premier League, and they are a great club.”

It is thought that the Spaniard could be available for up to €7million, although a loan could be an alternative option, with there being no place in Unai Emery’s plans for the striker.

Perez spent last season on loan back at Deportivo, and scored seven goals in all competitions.
