West Ham's Hernandez dreaming of top six finish

The Spaniard had hoped to win over his compatriot this summer

West Ham were already interested but now West Brom have joined the race to sign him.

It appeared as if new Arsenal boss Unai Emery would give the centre-forward a second chance as he included him in the pre-season tour of Singapore but the Spaniard ultimately moved to West Ham with the Gunners taking a huge hit on their £17m outlay.

It has been a really busy summer in east London and the 29-year-old Perez becomes West Ham's eighth new signing, as manager Manuel Pellegrini overhauls his squad.

Perez scored seven goals in 21 appearances for the Gunners, with agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle telling ESPN FC on Monday that he wanted to stay in London and prove himself in the Premier League.

"I'm very happy to be here at such an historic club", he said.

Dead fetus found on plane at LaGuardia Airport
The fetus was found at about 7 a.m. on an American Airlines flight that had landed Monday night from Charlotte. Tuesday morning, the cleaning crew found the fetus hidden inside the toilet under sheets of toilet paper.


The Hammers also added Sanchez, 32, just before the deadline shut.

He returned to the La Liga side last season and many suspected he could have had a fresh start at the Emirates.

"I'm very motivated and I know I need to work hard to win a place in the starting line-up and then perform as well as I can to help the team with goals, assists and good performances to get the points to move up the table".

Not content with having Lucas Perez lined-up, Manuel Pellegrini is also pushing to bolster his side's midfield ranks with the addition of Fiorentina's Carlos Sanchez - who will be remembered for his previous spell at Aston Villa, where he left a lot to be desired.

Perez joins the likes of Andriy Yarmolenko, Jack Wilshere, Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski, Issa Diop, Fabián Balbuena, and Felipe Anderson.
