Pellegrini has already turned his back on two transfers at West Ham this summer, with Andre Gomes and Stanislav Lobotka no longer targets.
That is largely because West Ham felt the transfers were too difficult to complete, and they want to bring in players early on in the transfer window.
West Ham want Gomez from Celta Vigo so badly that they are prepared to wait on the striker.
The Hammers, otherwise, want their business to be swift and they will be happy with the efficient way they have been able to progress a deal for Pablo Fornals.
West Ham are now set to snap up Fornals in the near future from Villarreal, with Pellegrini adding another creative option to his squad.
West Ham’s transfer strategy has often been criticised, but they really appear to have improved since Pellegrini’s and Mario Husillos’s arrivals.
And if West Ham do wrap up their business as early as Pellegrini is planning then it could be a very exciting season ahead at the London Stadium.
