West Ham open to Obiang moving to Serie A

West Ham are willing to allow midfielder Pedro Obiang to leave the club this month.

Roma are believed to be keen on a loan deal to sign the 26-year-old, with Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini reportedly willing to sanction the switch.

The Italian side previously expressed an interest in the midfielder last summer, although West Ham rejected that particular approach, however Sky Italia are reporting that stance has since changed and a deal could be struck this month.

Obiang has previous experience of playing in Serie A, having played for Sampdoria between 2008-2015 before joining West Ham in a €6m deal that summer.

Born in Spain and capped by his birth country up to U21 level, Obiang switched allegiance to represent Equatorial Guinea at senior international level and made his debut in a 1-0 loss to Senegal in November 2018.

He has featured intermittently for West Ham so far this season, making 13 Premier League appearances.
