  • The Spaniard had hoped to win over his compatriot this summer

On the other hand, West Ham has confirmed the signing of striker Perez after reaching an agreement with England's Arsenal.

New Irons manager Manuel Pellegrini was keen to make a further enforcement to his midfield before the end of the window after the departure of Cheikhou Kouyaté to Crystal Palace.

Lucas Perez has been officially unveiled by West Ham United after crossing from Arsenal.

"They are hungry guys who want to come and show themselves in the toughest league, the Premier League, it's a very hard league".

Perez scored seven goals in 21 appearances for the North London club.

The 29-year-old has endured a hard spell at Arsenal, spending last year on loan at Deportivo after struggling for football in his first season at the club.

Sanchez is Pellegrini's ninth summer addition, following suit with Felipe Anderson, Andriy Yarmolenko, Jack Wilshere, Issa Diop, Lukasz Fabianski, Fabian Balbuena, Ryan Fredericks and today's earlier signing Lucas Perez from Arsenal.

Sanchez has won 88 caps for Colombia and played in the Premier League for Aston Villa between 2014 and 2016.

"I'm very happy to be part of this new project".

"He has great technical quality, and can play as both the main striker or the second striker in a deeper role".

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

But the Hammers, who begin their Premier League campaign against Liverpool at Anfield this Sunday, do not expect anyone else to leave the club.
