German midfielder linked with Hammers

ludovic-obraniak-01Werder Bremen Attacking midfielder Ludovic Obraniak is attracting interest from the Hammers, according to L’Equipe.

The Poland international, who was born in France, has reportedly been told he is no longer in the plans of Bremen who he joined earlier this year.

Prior to joining Bremen, Ludovic said “To me, it was England or Germany, otherwise I would have stayed at Bordeaux,”

Obraniak began his football career with his local club FC Metz  for whom he made 99 appearances scoring 5 goals. In 2007 he signed for Lille staying five years making 152 appearances and scoring 15 goals. In 2012, Obraniak  moved to Bordeaux for whom he played 68 times and scoring 14 goals.  He joined Werder Bremen in January 2014 making 10 appearances and scoring a single goal.

Whether the Hammers are in the market for another midfielder remains to be seen with the club recently making it clear they were in the market for a centre back.
