Iron’s wait nearly over

Serie A outfit Sassuolo are now very confident in signing Pedro Obiang, but cannot proceed until the Irons return from China.

Obiang had some minutes on the field during the loss against Manchester City, and is also involved in West Ham’s pre-season preparations.

Sassuolo are willing to bring Obiang back to Italy where he started his career back when he played for Sampdoria, and has been in talks to make a deal.

They have almost fully sealed the deal and it now looks certain he will be heading ‘home’ as soon as he’s back.

He has been often linked with returns to Italy for the past few years, but was forced to wait when the club sold Cheik  Kouyate to Palace..

  1. Sad to see him go, has been a good squad player over the years. I think the proceeds will be spent on Medel and another striker!

    • I would be surprised if we can’t do better than Medel even for little money. We have a massive scouting network, surely there’s somebody younger and better than Medel.

      I like Obiang as a bloke but aside from one decent season, I think he’s been average to poor for several years. I think his level is so mediocre that Josh Cullen would have to try hard to be worse.
