West Ham are trying to sign Arsenal forward Lucas Perez, according to reports.
Perez, who can also play out wide, has been a target for the Hammers this summer and would be a cheaper alternative to other targets.
West Ham have ended their pursuit of Porto winger Yacine Brahimi after failing to agree personal terms with the player. The clubs had agreed a fee.
Perez has found first-team opportunities limited following his move to the Emirates from Deportivo La Coruna in August 2016 for a fee understood to be £17.1m – scoring once in 11 Premier League matches.
He spent last season on loan with Deportivo, scoring eight goals in 35 appearances.
