Spain international attacking midfielder Pablo Fornals linked up with the Hammers in June 2019.

A creative, technically-gifted playmaker with an eye for goal, Fornals joined the Hammers from Villarreal, for whom he excelled in both La Liga and the UEFA Europa League.

Fornals, who became the second most-expensive signing in the Club’s history, was capped by Spain for the first time at the age of 20 before helping his country win the UEFA European U21 Championship in 2019.
