Sanchez, who has 88 caps for Colombia, has been a stalwart for his country for over a decade but is perhaps better known on these shores for his two-year stint at Aston Villa between 2014-16.

Reports of West Ham's interest in Arsenal outcast Lucas Perez first arose yesterday and things have progressed significantly in the past 24 hours, with a deal now on the verge of completion as we enter the final days of the window.

West Ham United have endured relegation battles in their last two Premier League campaigns but striker Javier Hernandez says he is dreaming of a top six finish this season.

But this isn't the first time the 25-year-old's future at Old Trafford has been in doubt. I think the World Cup is the flawless habitat for a player like him to give the best.

Perez scored seven times in 21 appearances for Arsenal, including a hat-trick in the Champions League away to Basel. He went back to Deportivo on loan last season and was surplus to requirements at the Emirates after the arrivals of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

"West Ham have great fans and play in an incredible stadium, so to sign here brings me great joy".

"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".

But he says any deal would be structured so that shareholders could opt to remain investors or be bought out at $420 per share. Asked on Twitter whether Musk would continue to be CEO under such a scenario, he replied there would be "no change".

Perez becomes Manuel Pellegrini's ninth signing of the season as much will be expected from the London club in the new season.

'I'd like to thank all of the people, the whole club, for having me'.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed, but local media said West Ham had paid about 4 million pounds for the Spaniard. He can also cover other positions but it is as a defensive midfielder that he really excels.
