Exit door looms for popular Hammer


Exit door looms for popular Hammer

West Ham midfielder Pablo Fornals may be gone from the club in January should Seville decide to follow up  their interest in him.

The Spanish outfit are currently sitting in 14th place in the La Liga with eight points just two above the bottom three and are keen to do a deal with the Irons.

Fornals fee in January or free as exit door looms

However, should they decide to go for a January move rather than sign him on a free in the summer they will need to find close to the £10 million the Irons will want.

It’s a decision they will need to make over the next couple of months as the race  from the bottom hots up and if it is the latter they would need to organise a pre-contract agreement with him in January.

One way or another however, he will be leaving the club having made his position clear in the past.
