Tottenham Hotspur have yet to sign a player in the last 16 months, and they will no longer be securing the signature of Villarreal’s Pablo Fornals.

Spurs were linked with the 23-year-old in the past week, but he has now secured a move to Tottenham’s bitter rivals West Ham United. Arsenal were also said to be interested in the ex-Villarreal man (Sun).

The Spanish forward has joined the Hammers for a reported fee of £24m and will join up with the side after the Euro U21 tournament finishes (BBC).

Fornals scored four goals last season from a central midfield position, including three in Europe.

However, reports are now claiming that West Ham’s signing could do Spurs a favour, as the two London sides were also said to be competing for Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos (Daily Star).

If West Ham have already found their new central midfield man, they may be less likely to hinder Spurs’ chances of signing Ceballos (El Des Marque).

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. West Ham love linking other clubs to their new signings

    If Arsenal or Tottenham wanted Fornals, he’d have signed for one of them, it’s really that simple

  2. What complete and utter tripe! Clearly if he was a Spurs target he would have signed for us rather than West Ham, which should tell you succinctly that we never had the slightest interest in him.

  3. “Reported Spurs target”??? they are all reported Spurs targets considering (according to the gutter media) we are going to sign any old Jonnie Kickaball and his younger brother! So does this mean that everytime another team buys a player we have to look at these articles each day? hahahah
