Pablo Fornals is expected to become West Ham United’s latest summer signing over the weekend and the Villarreal play-maker could be in line for a substantial pay rise, according to El Periodico.

A two-time Spain international, Fornals is one of the most exciting young midfielders in La Liga with the skill of a street footballer and the vision befitting of a player who has honed his trade on the Castellon coast.

 

The Mail reports that West Ham are set to complete a £24 million deal to make the former Malaga star their third summer signing, after goalkeeping duo David Martin and Roberto Jimenez.

Now, El Periodico has offered more insight into a big-money move, claiming that Fornals is set to put pen to paper on a five-year contract at the London Stadium.
