Football pundit Terry Gibson has admitted that he is gutted that Tottenham Hotspur did not sign Pablo Fornals.
“I think he’s a sensational player, he really is,” Gibson told the Sky Sports News Transfer Talk podcast.
“I’m a Spurs fan, and I would have loved Spurs to have sign him, so I’m pretty envious of West Ham getting a really exciting young player.”
“He’s an all-round midfield player, he’s versatile, he can play wide, he can play central midfield, but he’s very attacking. His work rate is good, and in my opinion, his best position is if a team play a 4-4-1-1 formation, and he plays that role behind the striker, so you allow him to flourish, you allow him to get on the ball, you allow him to do everything good that he does in the game. I would say he would be very similar to someone like Dele Alli or James Maddison who play in that role, where you encourage them to just go and be attack-minded and to be creative, so I think he’s a player that the West Ham supporters will really enjoy watching,” he added.
