Hammers agree fee for Fornals

Hammers agree Fornals fee

Pablo Fornal’s is on his way from West Ham for a fee of £6.8 million according to the BBC.

The Hammers are reported to accepted a deal from Real Betis who are managed by the man who brought the midfielder to the Hammers – Manuel Pellegrini.

Fornals has proved himself a really popular individual during his time in claret and blue having made 202 appearances since his arrival in 2019 from Villareal.

However, he has struggled to gain a regular starting spot this season following the arrival of Mohammed Kudus and James Ward-Prowse in the summer.

Fornals has only started four Premier League games for David Moyes’ side in 2023/24.

Although West Ham triggered a one-year option on Fornals’ contract in December, it was always likely they would let him leave if the right bid was received.

The club believed he was more likely to move in the summer but is now on his way back to Betis who are believed to have beaten Sevilla to his signature.
