North London giants Arsenal have to fend off the threat of West Ham United in the bid to sign Villarreal midfielder Pablo Fornals this summer.

According to the Guardian, West Ham United have made Pablo Fornals their top transfer target having moved on from their chase for Celta Vigo and Slovakian national team midfielder Stanislav Lobotka.

The Gunners were seriously linked with Pablo Fornals during the winter transfer window and the North London giants are still in the market for a new midfielder.

Pablo Fornals has a release clause of around £25m in his present contract at Spanish La Liga club Villarreal.

The 23-year-old was part of the Villarreal team that reached the Europa League quarterfinals this season before they were eliminated by fellow Spanish top flight club Valencia.

Villarreal also managed to escape relegation from the top flight having flirted with the drop for the majority of the just concluded season.

West Ham United are keen to sign a quality midfielder this summer and they have been linked with a lot of midfielders including Barcelona star Andre Gomes who spent the just concluded season at Everton.

The Hammers have made two separate bids for the £25m-rated Portuguese international only for Barcelona to turn down the two bids of £18m and £20m
