Manuel Pellegrini clearly believes that Pablo Fornals is about to bring a new dimension to West Ham United.
Fabian Balbuena has become the choice to skipper the Irons if and when Mark Noble is unavailable or rested.
Pablo Fornals has been being watched by plenty of clubs since the winter transfer window and at one point was linked to Arsenal.
West Ham’s are being reported as possibly being ready to re-open their previously highly contentious attempts to take defensive midfielder William Carvalho out of Real Betis.
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.
West Ham are keen to offload Norwegian Hammer Martin Samuelsen who has one year of his contract remaining.
