Perez joined Arsenal from Deportivo La Coruna for £17m two years ago, but played only 11 times, hitting a Champions League hat-trick against Basel, before being loaned back to Deportivo last season.

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.
