West Ham fans react to Obiang speculation

West Ham United midfielder Pedro Obiang is a £15m transfer target for Fiorentina, Villarreal and Besiktas this summer, as covered by The Sun at the weekend.

Obiang joined the Hammers from Sampdoria back in 2015, and he is fast closing on 100 appearances for the Premier League club in all competitions.

The 26-year-old missed a lot of football last season due to a knee problem, but was involved in West Ham’s 3-1 win over Everton on the final weekend of the campaign.

Obiang has a contract at the London Stadium until the summer of 2022, but it is understood that Fiorentina, Villarreal and Besiktas all want to sign him ahead of the 2018-19 season.

It remains to be seen whether new West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini views Obiang as part of his plans moving forward.

However, the club’s supporters have been reacting to the speculation on social media.

There are those who feel that Obiang would not be a huge miss, but there are also plenty who would be disappointed to see the Spain-born midfielder leave the club this summer.
