The Hammers have signed Fornals from Spanish club Villarreal in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £24 million.

 

Gold has outlined what the 23-year-old attacking midfielder will bring to Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

Good signing for West Ham United

Fornals is a very good and promising young attacking midfielder who could prove to be a smart long-term signing for West Ham.

The 23-year-old made 28 starts and seven substitute appearances in La Liga for Villarreal this past season, scoring two goals and providing three assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

The attacking midfielder also made 10 starts and two substitute appearances in the Europa League for the Yellow Submarine in 2018-19, scoring three goals and providing three assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

West Ham did not have a great 2018-19 campaign and will be hopping to challenge for the Premier League top six next season.
