West Ham is trapped as plans for a star’s January departure from the club develop.

According to a source, a Champions League contender is expected to attack West Ham United for Pablo Fornals in January, and the kind of money they can anticipate receiving won’t sit well in east London.

Throughout his time in the city, David Moyes has consistently been able to rely on Fornals, who is 27 years old. Over the last two seasons, the Spaniard played in 104 games, with the club’s victory in the Europa Conference League during which Fornals was a second-half substitute.

Six of West Ham’s seven games so far this season have featured the dynamic midfielderHowever, the majority of those appearances have been as substitutes, with recent additions such Edson Alvarez, James Ward-Prowse, and Mohamed Kudus being given preference. Another significant hurdle standing in the way of Fornals receiving consistent playing time going forward is the retention of Lucas Paqueta, who nearly signed with Manchester City over the summe

Fornals’ time with the Hammers may be coming to an end once the winter window opens, reports Spanish publication El Sevillista.

As Fornals is in the final year of his contract, he will be allowed to speak with foreign clubs about a pre-contract starting on January 1.

State of West Ham Zone West Ham has been unable in getting Fornals to sign a new deal. An exit sometime in 2024 appears to be the most likely result right now.

But a sale to Sevilla in January has been rumored in order to make sure Fornals doesn’t depart for nothing.

According to El Sevillista, Sevilla and Fornals held negotiations throughout the summer, but the ‘expensive price’ demanded by West Ham prevented a deal from happening.

Sevilla, who is taking part in this year’s Champions League, has maintained their interest. It is rumored that they are considering signing Fornals in January in order to expedite their pursuit rather than waiting until next summer

West Ham’s ability to hold out for a sizeable sum has weakened thanks to the player’s contract situation. As such, it’s claimed just a ‘negligible’ bid will be enough to seal a deal. The alternative for West Ham is losing the player for nothing at season’s end anyway.

Sevilla have begun the new campaign in stuttering fashion, picking up just seven points from a possible 18 in LaLiga.

The result of their UCL home opener versus Lens in France was a 1-1 tie. Given the disappointing results, Sevilla’s management is looking to Fornals to assist them make a splash in January and put an end to their season.
