Just the type of player we need: West Ham fans are excited by possible Fornals arrival

West Ham United are said to be closing in on a swoop for Villarreal midfielder Pablo Fornals ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

Fornals, 23, scored five times and registered six assists in 50 appearances for the Yellow Submarine last season.

The midfielder actually has a contract with Villarreal until June 2022 but will seemingly be on the move in this summer’s transfer window.

And it would be fair to say that the West Ham fans are excited by the prospect of the two-time Spain international arriving at the London Stadium.

It is a very important transfer window for the Hammers as they look to close the gap on the top seven during the 2019-20 season.

And there is every reason to believe that Manuel Pellegrini’s side could become the best of the rest – outside of the top six – if they enjoy a strong summer.

A selection of the Twitter reaction in relation to Fornals can be seen below:
