As we eagerly await the official announcement of Pablo Fornals as the third West Ham signing of the summer, speculation on social media has been discussing how the 24-year-old will fit within the team, whether he is a replacement for Manuel Lanzini and who could be dropped.
Before the summer transfer window opened clubinsiders indicated there would five or six signings this summer with a larger number of players leaving West Ham.
Celta Vigo finished just one place above the relegation zone from La Liga last season despite the inclusion of Maxi Gomez and Stanislav Lobotka in their first team. It just goes to show that two players can’t carry a whole team and now is the best time to cash to help overhaul their squad this summer.
Manuel Lanzini joined West Ham on loan in 2015 with the Hammers eventually paying £10.8m to Al-Jazira in the summer of 2016 to make his move permanent. In July 2016 the Argentine player signed a four-year contract with a clause for another two years.
