Report: Before the transfer window closes, Manuel Pellegrini is aiming to sign a “brilliant” West Ham player.
Pablo Fornals, a playmaker for West Ham, is apparently eager to join Real Betis before the January transfer window closes, according to reports from Manuel Pellegrini.
Even though the Spanish winger gave the Hammers some incredible moments during their UEFA Europa Conference League run last season, he has fallen out of favor in east London this season.
Fornals, who was praised by David Moyes as a “brilliant” player, has fallen from grace, as seen by the fact that he has only made four Premier League starts this year.

Furthermore, Betis are eager to get Fornals before the January transfer window closes or in the summer, when it is anticipated that the Spaniard will be available for a low cost to West Ham, according to ABC Seville.
It makes perfect sense that Pellegrini, the former manager of West Ham, is interested in returning Fornals to Spain via Andalusia, especially as he is still in charge at Betis.
Additionally, since West Ham and Fornals appear to be done, a deal could be reached before the January transfer window closes, albeit the Irons could need to reduce their asking price for the former Villarreal star.

It is obvious that Fornals is no longer a long-term fixture at West Ham; Moyes will probably bring in a replacement when more money becomes available in the summer.
Additionally, given that Pellegrini is in charge and that the player previously worked with the Chilean manager in east London, the player believes that returning to La Liga with Betis would be the best professional option.
If the chance to return arises in the next few days, Fornals could certainly enjoy himself in Spain, and West Ham ought to be open to allowing the winger to return home in January.
Although the 27-year-old would be useful for squad depth, it’s clear that West Ham is willing to let go of Fornals, and the former Malaga player would love to join Betis under Pellegrini.
