Revealed: Majority of West Ham fans hate the idea of Lemina replacing Obiang

West Ham United have been busy bringing in new recruits in this transfer window, but when that happens, it usually means that there will be some outgoings too.

Jack Wilshere, who is one of seven new arrivals, has been brought in to boost the midfield, but it appears that the Hammers could lose a player from that area.

According to Sky Sports News, the East London outfit are in talks with Sampdoria to sell Pedro Obiang, who played for the Italian outfit before joining West Ham in 2015.

The same report states that if the Spaniard leaves for a fee thought to be in the region of £8.9m, then the Hammers will target Southampton’s Mario Lemina.

The Gabon international has spent one season in the Premier League so far following his switch from Juventus last summer.

The midfielder, who has less defensive qualities than Obiang, managed just 25 appearances in the top flight.

We asked you if Lemina would be an adequate replacement, and a small majority of the West Ham fans polled are not convinced.
