West Ham have officially completed the signing of Lucas Perez from Arsenal on a three-year deal, and some fans were very impressed with the way he was announced on Twitter.

The Spaniard has moved across the city for a snip £5 million (split into an initial £4 million plus £1 million in add-ons according to ITV) and is ready for a fresh start after his career effectively stalled for two years as a Gunner.

Perez was loaned out last season to former club Deportivo La Coruna after Arsene Wenger couldn’t see a way into the team for him, and new boss Unai Emery clearly shared the Frenchman’s views for the 2018/19 season.

The 29-year-old has therefore jumped ship, and has become West Ham’s ninth summer signing following successful deals for Lukasz Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop, Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko, Felipe Anderson, Fabian Balbuena and Xande Silva.

As is the case with any new signing these days, the club have been busy pushing out content on the new man online, including his first words as a West Ham player, but it was his announcement video that created a particular buzz and not just among Irons fans.

Here are just some of the responses to the club’s creative fantasy football-style video, with complementary Queen lyrics:
