West Ham United will attempt to lure Lucas Perez to the London Stadium this summer, according to the Mirror.

The 28-year-old is known to be frustrated by his lack of playing time at the Emirates since moving from Deportivo La Coruna in the summer.

The £17 million signing has only started two games in the Premier League despite impressing off the bench and in the cup competitions. To date, the Spaniard has seven goals to his name, including a hat-trick in the Champions League, and six assists.

Reporter John Cross claims that Arsenal’s coaching staff are surprised by Lucas’ attitude towards the competition for places.

In February, Arsene Wenger admitted he had a headache when choosing from his myriad attacking options saying of the striker:

“It is true that he deserves a go because he scores goals and is a good player.”

Two weeks ago, the player responded by underlining that he has a good relationship with the manager.
