Arsenal and West Ham are reportedly chasing Villarreal midfielder Pablo Fornals.

The Spain international is believed to have a £28.5million buy-out clause.

Fornals has been a shining light in Villarreal’s poor season, appearing 29 times. The club are second from bottom and three points from safety.

Spanish publication Sport claim the 22-year-old is “on the agenda” of Arsenal and West Ham.

Speaking about his player’s future earlier this month, Villarreal boss Luis Garcia said: “I live a normal life with Fornals.

“He’s training perfectly, as if nothing’s going on. Until something reaches me, I have no idea and the club have already said that there’s nothing at the moment.

“We’re working with complete normality and I see Pablo focused and involved.”

Fornals, who has previously been linked with Premier League strugglers Fulham, has been capped twice by Spain.
