West Ham midfielder Pablo Fornals could be nearing an exit from the club, with ExWHUEmployee providing an update on the situation.

The Spanish international, who joined West Ham from Villarreal back in 2019, has seen much speculation surrounding his long term future in recent months, with a move looking at times probable during the summer transfer window.

Despite being a popular player amongst all connected with the club, Fornals has struggled to nail down a starting 11 role under David Moyes, which appears to be the driving force behind the players stance at present to not sign an extension to his current contract.

“As we reported on the Podcast, a number of players have been in talks with the club over a new deal,” stated our Podcast co-host and club insider Ex on The West Ham Way Patreon. “Pablo Fornals was one of those players who we said were in talks. At the moment the player has turned down new offers over a lack of first team football.

“A number of Spanish clubs are said to be interested in the player which is his preferred location, as well as interest in England and Saudi Arabia.”

Ex has subsequently advised that the club will now work to reach an agreement for Fornals to remain in east London, although with the players desire for more first team football, this could prove to be a huge stumbling block.

“The club will try to convince the player to remain in further weeks,” added Ex. “But it seems the only way this will happen is if he starts more games, but with our current squad strength this seems unlikely.”

Ex will be keeping fans up to date on the situation as it progresses on The West Ham Way Patreon.
