Big West Ham fan favourite Pablo Fornals wants a La Liga return as Sevilla and Real Betis prepare bids claim AS in Spain.

Pablo Fornals is a massive favourite among West Ham fans but has been linked with a move away in this summer transfer window.

‘Cockney Carzola’ Fornals did not get as much game time as he would have liked with the Hammers last season.

David Moyes recently admitted Fornals often frustrates him but also praised the Spaniard for his vision.

El Desmarque recently reported that Manuel Pellegrini – the man who signed Fornals for West Ham – wants to a reunion with him at Real Betis.

Big West Ham fan favourite Pablo Fornals wants La Liga return as Sevilla and Real Betis prepare bids claim AS in Spain

The report claimed Betis had approached the 27-year-old’s entourage.

Now big West Ham fan favourite Fornals wants a La Liga return as Sevilla and Real Betis prepare bids claim AS in Spain.

AS is reporting today that Sevilla are seriously keen on signing Fornals and claims West Ham could be willing to sell for around £8m as he only has one year left on his contract.

Crucially, though, AS claims Fornals “wants to return to La Liga” with Betis also still interested ahead of the transfer deadline in less than two weeks.

‘West Ham could be willing to sell Fornals for £5-8m’ claim Spanish press

“The Nervionense team has surveyed the Castellón player’s environment in recent weeks to gauge the chances of buying him from West Ham in his last year of contract,” AS reports.

“Several more La Liga teams have asked about Fornals this summer, including Betis. But the Verdiblancos cannot undertake the signing because of the salary limit.

“Fornals, 27, wants to return to La Liga and sees Nervión and the possibility of playing in the Champions League as a magnificent place to continue his career…. As he has a few months left to be free, the footballer should leave for much less than that figure: between five and eight million (pounds).”

Presently Fornals is a crucial player for West Ham.

But if the Hammers do manage to pull off the signing of Mohammed Kudus then it starts to look increasingly difficult to see him starting.

Jesse Lingard could also be signed, adding more competition for the Hammers fan favourite.

West Ham fans would undoubtedly be sad to see Fornals go if the reports are accurate.
