Pedro Obiang is not for sale despite interest from Italy.
Sky Sports previously reported that West Ham have rejected bids from both Fiorentina and Atalanta.
This week reports from Italy claimed that Atalanta had made a new bid offering the Hammers a £890,000 loan fee for a season with an option to buy worth £8m but club insiders say the club have no intention of loaning or selling the player this summer.
A club insider told Claret and Hugh this morning: “Obiang is not on the managers sell list, we can’t prevent silly low offers from Italy, why would be loan him as it would leave us short?”
Obiang made his £4.5 million switch from Sampdoria to West Ham in the summer of 2015 in a deal worth £4.5m but it appears the Hammers are not ready to cash in and Pellegrini still has plans for him in the coming season.
