Hammers will listen to midfielder bids

Obiang Napoli are again being reported as being ready to to bid for Pedro Obiang in the summer transfer window.

A report in www.calciomercato.it claims that the Serie A team hope to lure the 24-year-old away from the Premier League with the promise of regular first team football.

And this morning (Sat) ClaretandHugh was told by insiders at West Ham that that the club would be ready to listen to sensible offers.

Obiang has become frustrated with his lack of first-team starts for the Hammers and Napoli have been monitoring his situation for weeks.

The report claims they would test the Hammers with a £7m bid. Although the Spanish midfielder recorded 24 appearances in a claret and blue shirt this season, thirteen of these were as a substitute and his 1,079 minutes on the pitch is equivalent to just 12 games. Obiang scored no goals and made one assist.

Obiang was Slaven Bilic’s first signing in June 2015 paying Sampdoria for £4.5 million in return for a five-year contract.

  1. He is worth at least £10 million or keep him,still think we looked a better side and more balanced with him in the side just hope Norveld is as good as he is billed and does that mean Poyet will come back into the squad ?

  2. Keep him!! So underrated and brings a calming balance to our midfield. Nortveid needs to be something special to be better than Obiang, you can understand his unrest with lack of gametime and a new player brought in for his position.

  3. We should keep Obiang. Good player and unfortunate not to get more starts. He’s not the sort of player we should be letting go.

  4. Poyet will be out the door bubs,he wasnt even getting a regular gig for Charlton.I know a few Addicks fans who said he was a shadow of the player he was when he was originally there.He is a dead Iron walking from what I can see of it.
    I would be sad to see Obiang go though.There again I don’t see him day in day out in training.Anyway we dont have room for everyone in our starting eleven,if he aint happy let him go & good luck to the guy 🙂

  5. It would be a travesty if we let him go. He is a quality player who does have a calming effect on those around him and has never let us down.

  6. This reminds me of our fans last season when it was touted Downing might leave.Many fans up in arms,no,no,no don’t sell him,he is our only creative player,he is an integral part of our attacking options.Well he wasnt missed was he so whats to say Obiang will be.Players come & go,thats life.

  7. Obiang was not one of slavs choices. He was being scouted last season after the Sampdoria freindly, and came in just after Slav.
    I think slav noticed he wasn’t combative enough in midfield.

    I saw Nordveit twice within a few weeks in live games against very good german opposition, and he looked very calm and competent. He was never flustered. He played one game on the right of a back 3, and the next one on the left of a back 3. He is versatile, confident and very confident.

  8. I would keep him Tonks and even Valencia, especially if we qualify for Europe. They would all see more game time

  9. I hope we keep him we need quality players in the team and I think European nights he could really come into his own, he is only 24 last season was his first in England lets give him a chance we signed him on a five year contract so no need to rush to make any decisions.
