Bienvenido Pablo Fornals!
Confirmed on their official website, West Ham United have signed Pablo Fornals from Villarreal for £24m on a five-year contract. But the question now lies, for a fee like that, how well will Fornals adapt to the Premier League?
As the picture above suggests, he can do it all. Averaging almost two key passes per game last campaign, the Spaniard also makes his fair share of tackles (68 last season). This versatility is exactly what West Ham United need, as they have been plagued with injuries in recent times.
The only issue that I could see with Fornals is that he is quite the lightweight (67kg); this could be problematic in the physical English conditions. You can get away with it in La Liga, but the Premier League is a different story…
At 23-years-old, a £24m fee is extremely low in this market, and you can expect the value to explode as he adapts to life in England. Hammers fans, how happy are you?
