West Brom in competition with West Ham to sign Fiorentina midfielder

Fiorentina are looking to offload several players this summer in order to trim their squad and the Colombia worldwide is believed to be on the cull list.

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.

Capped 88 times by Colombia, Sanchez would add experience to a position where West Ham do not have depth. After spending six years there, he would sign for Spanish team Elche but he only lasted a year at that side before signing for Aston Villa.

West Ham have already spent big this summer, landing the likes of Felipe Anderson, Issa Diop and Andriy Yarmolenko - as well as bringing in former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere on a free transfer.

West Ham United are in talks about a deal for Arsenal forward Lucas Perez, with the player keen on staying in London and the Premier League, the player's agent has told ESPN FC.

With the Baggies unable to offer Premier League football like West Ham, they would have to convince him to turn down a move to London.

Spurs are ready to approve an exit for the 33-year-old, either on loan or permanently.

Scotland worldwide Robert Snodgrass was a forgotten man at West Ham last season, as he was ousted from the first-team and instead spent the campaign on loan in the Championship with Aston Villa - where he caught the eye.
