Heavily linked with a return to Sampdoria last summer and a move to Fiorentina in January, Pedro Obiang doesn’t appear against a return to Italy.

The West Ham midfielder only started a third of the Hammers’ Premier League games under Manuel Pellegrini this season, coming off the bench more often than not, totalling 24 appearances in the competition.

While there’s been no indication a transfer will take place in the summer, it could certainly happen if the last two windows are anything to go by, and, luckily for the 27-year-old, another club in Serie A want him.

According to Il Tempo, Pedro Obiang has become a target for Roma, who are close to appointing Shakhtar manager Paulo Fonseca as Claudio Ranieri’s successor.

As things stand, their number one priority is to sort out the goalkeeper role, wanting to move on from Robin Olsen, but strengthening the midfield is also on their agenda, which is where the Equatorial Guinea international comes in.

Arriving from Sampdoria back in 2015, the Spain born midfielder has made 116 appearances for the Hammers so far, scoring three goals and picking up three assists.
