Lucas Perez linked with summer West Ham switch

According to The Times (£) Lucas Perez is a summer target for West Ham.

They suggest an inquiry as to his availability has already been made, and given that the Spaniard has just started two Premier League games it wouldn’t be a surprise if he was exploring his options.

He has scored 7 goals and made 6 assists since his £17m move from Deportivo la Coruña late in August, including a Champions League hat-trick, but failed to do enough to convince Arsene Wenger to play him more regularly.

He didn’t start Saturday’s 5-0 FA Cup win over Lincoln City, despite the fact he’s started every previous round and opened the scoring in the 2-0 win over Sutton United in our last FA Cup game.

In total he’s appeared in just 11 of the 26 Premier League games Arsenal have played this season, and although he did miss a spell via injury, it seems he’s a player that’s very much on the margins of Wenger’s thoughts.

We’ll see what happens, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if there was a parting of the ways at the end of the season. And while we don’t possess any supernatural powers, we here at Arseblog News have a feeling he might well pop up with something important before the end of this current campaign.
