Monday could finally be the day Pedro Obiang leaves West Ham after a rather busy summer of transfer rumours.
The midfielder, who spent seven years with Sampdoria before his move to the Hammers, is set to return to Serie A very soon, as Sassuolo have all but wrapped up his signing.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, ‘today is the day of his exit and subsequent travel to Italy’ as the Premier League club accepted the offer of €8m + bonuses for the former Spain U21 international, who recently declared for Equatorial Guinea.
This news is corroborated by Corriere dello Sport, who explain his arrival is ‘only a matter of hours’, with ‘everything going according to the script’.
The transfer will put an end to his four-year adventure in England’s top tier, having arrived from the aforementioned Sampdoria back in 2015 in exchange for £5.4m.
During his time at London Stadium, the midfielder made 116 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and assisting teammates three times.
