Arsenal v West Ham Premier League Preview 0

Posted on August 24, 2018 by David Nugent

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal host West Ham at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to pick up their first league win of the campaign.

Unai Emery’s side will be looking to kick-start their Premier League campaign back on track after losing their opening games against Manchester City and Chelsea respectively. In fact, the Gunners have lost three of their last four Premier League outings.

Despite those negatives, Arsenal’s recent home record in the Premier League is still strong, as the City defeat ended a five-game winning run on home soil. A key to that recent good run of form has been the Gunners firepower, as Arsenal have now scored at least two goals in seven of the last nine games.

According to the London Standard, Arsenal are considering a late window bid of around £26.9million for Besiktas and Croatia centre-back Domagoj Vida. The Turkish club are understood to be willing to sell the 29-year-old this summer.

Vida in-demand

Vida impressed at the World Cup and helped his country to the final, where they suffered a 4-2 defeat. Alongside legend in his own lunchtime Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren, the defender formed a formidable central defensive partner for Zlatko Dalic’s side.

Vida’s performances in Russia reportedly attracted the interest of Premier League duo Everton and Liverpool. It seems Arsenal were also impressed by the centre-backs displays. The defender is believed to fancy a move to England and the Premier League.

It seems that Spanish striker Lucas Perez could be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium on a permanent basis this summer. Perez spent last season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna, who suffered relegation to the Spanish Segunda.

In truth, Perez failed to impress at the club where he first made his name. He has little chance of staying with the north London club, especially with the exit of veteran Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

In-demand elsewhere

According to his agent Rodrigo Fernandez, Italian club Lazio wants to sign Perez this summer. Fernandez is reported to have said: “Lazio asked for him last year, but nothing came of it.

According to Marca via talkSPORT, Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is a target for Levante, after his proposed return to Deportivo La Coruna broke down. The 28-year-old looked set to re-join the club who Arsenal signed him from 12 months ago, but now he might be joining another Spanish La Liga side.

Levante are believed to have put their name in the hat to sign Lucas, who last season scored and created 12 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions. He made few starts for Arsenal but proved prolific in the low number of minutes afforded by manager Arsene Wenger. However, the Gunners boss has dug his heels in when it comes to letting him leave this summer.
