He scores goals, but can also create them and link well with the midfielders.“His style is different from the other strikers we have available to us, and that gives the manager more options for our attacking play.“Lucas also has experience of the Premier League with Arsenal, and is familiar with life here in London, which of course means that he will take less time to adapt and be ready.“From the very first meeting I had with Lucas, he made it very clear that he wanted to come to West Ham United and, for us, this is very important. We wish him every success during his time here.” The 29-year-old, who spent last season on loan at former club Deportivo La Coruna, has penned a three-year deal with the Hammers.He moves across London to become West Ham’s eighth signing of the summer transfer window.“I’m very happy to be here at such an historic club,” the striker said on West Ham’s official website.“I’m very excited, as West Ham are giving me the chance to stay in the Premier League and I’m very happy to be part of this new project.“I’m very motivated.”West Ham announced the signing with another video on social media… West Ham have completed the deadline day signing of Arsenal striker Lucas Perez, in a reported £4million deal.
