Sevilla are 'looking to bring in West Ham midfielder Pablo Fornals'

Sevilla are ‘looking to bring in West Ham midfielder Pablo Fornals’ who is ‘keen on returning to his native Spain’

  • Pablo Fornals has been a key player for West Ham over the past two years
  • Sevilla are now ‘looking to bring in the Spanish midfielder this summer’ 
  • They would have to make ‘one big sale’ in order to accommodate him

Sevilla are ‘keen on signing West Ham midfielder Pablo Fornals’ before the transfer window closes.

The 27-year-old joined the Hammers for £24 million in 2019 and has been an important player for the club, scoring 23 goals in 181 appearances to date.

Few will be remembered more fondly than his injury-time strike against AZ Alkmaar in the Europa Conference League semi final. 

David Moyes’ side went on to win the tournament, their first major trophy in over 40 years.

Fornals has now entered the last year of his contract at the London Stadium and could be on his way out, as AS report that both Sevilla are eyeing a move for the midfielder.

They also report that the Spaniard is ‘keen on returning to La Liga’ and Sevilla may seem like a promising option after their Europa League victory took them into this year’s Champions League group stage.

His fee could reportedly be as low as ‘£4-7 million’ due to his contract situation, although Sevilla would likely need to sell ‘one more big name’ if they were to accommodate Fornals.

He would not be the first key player to leave West Ham this summer, after Declan Rice departed for Arsenal for £105m.

Gianluca Scamacca has also returned to Italy after an underwhelming first season in East London, with the striker joining Atalanta for £22m.

Their main additions have been Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse for £30 million and Ajax’s Edson Alvarez for £35m  although a planned move for Harry Maguire has fallen through.

The Hammers began their Premier League campaign with a reasonable performance as they drew 1-1 at Bournemouth last weekend, although they will be frustrated at conceding late on after leading for much of the second half.

Moyes’ men will next be in action in a tougher test against Chelsea in the late kick-off on Sunday.
