West Ham United made two further signings on transfer deadline day to take their total summer spending to nearly £100 million, behind only Liverpool, Chelsea and Fulham in the entire Premier League.

West Ham are among several clubs to have expressed an interest in Perez, who is surplus to requirements at the Emirates after the signings of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang over the last two transfer windows.

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.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that West Ham United have confirmed the signing of Lazio attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson for a club-record fee of a £40m.

Perez becomes the Hammers' eighth signing of the summer.

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.

Perez scored seven times in 21 appearances for Arsenal, including a hat-trick in the Champions League away to Basel.

Colombia worldwide Sanchez, 32, signed a two-year contract just minutes before the deadline, marking a return to the Premier League after he spent two seasons with Aston Villa from 2014-16.

'I'm very happy to be here.

West Ham also sold one player on deadline day, shipping 18-year-old Portuguese midfielder Domingos Quina to Watford.

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