West Ham fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news concerning one of their players. Lucas Perez has been subject to a loan offer from German side Schalke until the end of the season, according to BBC Sport.
The deal would see the Hammers being paid a loan fee and getting rid of some big wages from the books. This would allow the east London club to potentially bring in their own forward on loan for the remainder of this season.
Perez hasn’t pulled up any trees since his £4 million pound arrival from Arsenal last summer and fans haven’t particularly warmed to a player who only has two Premier League goals to his name this season.
Perez was out injured for the 3-0 defeat to Wolves on Tuesday which means we have perhaps seen the last of the Spaniard in claret and blue. Perez could potentially face English opposition again this season as Schalke play Manchester City in the next knockout round of the Champions League in February.
Here are some fan reactions to the news of the player’s potential departure and it’s safe to say there would be very few tears shed if he completed his move to Germany.
Good news. Frees up wage.

I would rather keep him over hernandez as I feel he puts more effort in.
