Report: Bid received for Obiang

Italian Journalist Gianluca Di Marzio is today suggesting that Italian club Sassuolo have made an offer of 9 million euros (£8.1m) for Hammers midfielder Pedro Obiang.

Last month Italian journalists suggested Obiang was a target of Bologna but they needed the Hammers to lower their valuation.

Last January Fiorentina nearly signed Obiang for £10m before he was denied his move by Pellegrini who said he didn’t have enough coverage for the remainder of the season. He was promised his move back to Itay in the summer if his valuation was met.

Fiorentina could yet swoop again, as could former club Sampdoria want him back, alongside Roma who is also said to hold some interest. West Ham have previously said they will listen to offers for the 27-year-old this summer who is said to earn around £50,000 per week.

In other news Fulham and Swansea are monitoring Reece Oxford and are considering offers to take him on season-long loans according to Sky Sports News
