Fulham are one of a whole host of clubs considering a move for West Ham’s Pedro Obiang, according to reports from Italy.
Obiang, 26, had an injury-effected season at the London Stadium last term, making just 21 league appearances for the Hammers. West Ham’s summer recruitment, which has seen former Arsenal man Jack Wiltshire, added to a strong midfield means the Spaniard is worried that will fall well down the pecking order in east London this term.
West Ham reportedly value Obiang at around £15m and have a number of potential suitors for his services. Sampdoria lead the way, with the Italian side reportedly in talks with the Hammers over a potential return to the club where Obiang first made his name, but Fulham. Fiorentina, Atalanta, Villareal, Lille and Sevilla are all keen on signing the powerful midfielder.
It remains to be seen whether the Whites would be willing to entertain meeting West Ham’s valuation, especially after adding Jean-Michael Seri as their big money signing earlier in the summer. Obiang has made 87 appearances in three years with the Hammers, scoring three goals.
