West Ham are preparing to make a £30m offer for Villarreal star Pablo Fornals this week.

According to Football Insider, West Ham are willing to up their bid for Fornals to £30m as they look to bring the Spanish midfielder to the Premier League next season.

The report claims that West Ham have been in advanced talks with Villarreal over a deal to sign Fornals this week and they hope to agree a deal on Wednesday.

West Ham are said to have already offered £20m for the midfielder, which Villarreal deemed unacceptable – with the Hammers now upping their bid.

Manuel Pellegrini worked with Fornals during his time at Malaga and could now be on course for a reunion with the Spaniard this summer if West Ham are able to iron out a deal.

The 23-year-old has scored nine times in 96 appearances for Villarreal since joining the club from Malaga in 2017.

West Ham have £29m Maxi Gomez bid accepted.
West Ham United have had a £29million offer for Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez accepted, but face stiff competition from Valencia, according to Sky Sports. Celta Vigo have also accepted a bid of the same value, with add-ons, from their La Liga rivals, so it’s now up to the player to decide which career path he wants to take. The 22-year-old has been a long-term target for Manuel Pellegrini and advanced talks were held in January, but West Ham would have had to pay his £43.3m release clause. Now at a cut-price, Gomez presents a good value signing which could potentially take the Hammers to the next level in their quest for European qualification.
