  • West Ham transfer news Carlos Sanchez is set to move to the Hammers

West Brom have emerged as surprise contenders in the race to sign Fiorentina midfielder Carlos Sanchez, with West Ham also keen. I am always aiming as high as I can and if we can put West Ham in the Champions League why not?

Former Arsenal favourite Jack Wilshere revealed the club's capture of Lucas Perez on social media.

He told the club's official website on the back of sizeable investment under new boss Manuel Pellegrini: "The club is doing well with improvements in all the areas, in the team, but also in all the staff they have brought in with the manager".

The Hammers have handed the former Deportivo La Coruna ace a three-year deal at the London Stadium, taking their summer spending close to the £100m mark.

While new arrival Perez, 29, joined Arsenal from Deportivo La Coruna in August 2016 and spent last season on loan back at the Spanish club.

Football.London states a deal bringing the 32-year-old Colombia worldwide to the London Stadium will be a loan agreement and will fight with Declan Rice and Pedro Obiang for a spot in defensive midfield - so first-team football will not be a guarantee.

'I'm very happy to be here. "I chose to come here because, first, it is the Premier League, second, it's a lovely club and the fans are always helping the club and, third, for me it's an wonderful opportunity and an unbelievable project the club are leading, being ambitious and keen to achieve good things".

The Brazilian completed his medical on Friday and subsequently signed a four-year contract at London Stadium until 2022.
