West Ham fans were left stunned following a report which stated that Barcelona have targeted the signing of former Hammers striker Lucas Perez.
The La Liga giants have an interest in signing the frontman, however, would have to fork out €25 million (£20.8m) to get him, which had fans in shock.

That’s about as West Ham as it gets.— Christopher Grawe (@cgrawe) February 12, 2020
He never got a proper chance, always used as back up, needed a run of games but never got it, better than Haller!— #MarcoBoogers# (@MarcoBoogers3) February 12, 2020
He was not a bad striker. But that's it. He is a pure striker. Ball in front of goal and he'll put it in. Another one I'd have liked to see play with Haller— KennyKen⚒️ (@KennyKen_COYI) February 12, 2020
