West Ham FC transfer report: Pedro Obiang set for early exit as talks begin with Fiorentina

24 Aug

West Ham are in talks with Fiorentina over the sale of midfielder Pedro Obiang, according to reports in Italy.

The 24-year-old only arrived from Sampdoria last summer but struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular, starting just 11 Premier League games all season.

That has led to questions regarding his long-term future and it has been suggested that he could leave east London just a year after his arrival.

Now the Gazzetta dello Sport has claimed that Fiorentina have firmed up their interest in the Spaniard with a £5m offer.

That would represent a small profit on Obiang but it is unclear whether the Hammers will want to lose a member of their squad so close to the transfer deadline unless they have a replacement lined up.
