Perez joined Arsenal in 2016 on a €14m move from Deportivo La Coruña. He ended up spending only one season at the Emirates, with seven goals and five assists in 21 games. Then he was sent back to his old club on a loan deal during the last season.

The fee paid by West Ham is expected to be around £5m.
