Real Betis keen on deal for West Ham striker Lucas Perez

Real Betis want to sign West Ham striker Lucas Perez in the January transfer window but may struggle to afford a deal, say reports.

Football.London say the Spaniard is open to a move to the Andalusian club but UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations may put a halt to any move.

The 30-year-old only joined the Hammers in a move from Arsenal this summer but has started just three league games for the club this season.

The Galician spent last season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna – netting nine goals in 37 appearances – but has failed to settle in England.

It is expected that Perez will depart the East London club at some point in 2019 as he appears unlikely to be earn a greater prominence in the first-team squad.
