Agent claims Pedro Obiang would consider offers, Napoli and Palermo interested

West Ham United Gate

West Ham midfielder Pedro Obiang is wanted by two Italian clubs.

The agent of West Ham midfielder Pedro Obiang has told CalcioMercato.it that he would consider offers to leave the club - but is currently happy at Upton Park.

Obiang, 23, joined West Ham from Serie A side Sampdoria last summer, giving manager Slaven Bilic another athletic option in midfield alongside Cheikhou Kouyate and Alex Song.

So far though, the Spaniard has struggled to play on a consistent basis, with fitness issues plaguing his time in England - but he did start a Premier League game for just the sixth time on Tuesday night, playing 90 minutes as West Ham beat Bournemouth 3-1.

Today though, Obiang's future has been thrown into some doubt, after his agent discussed his future with the Hammers during an interview.

Jose Miguel Gonzalez has told CalcioMercato.it that Obiang is 'fascinated' by London, and he is happy at the club - but would consider leaving if a team made a proposal for him.

"We’re very pleased with the adaptation to the new project with West Ham and the Premier League in general," said Gonzalez. "Pedro is fascinated by the city, the language and everything else. It’s a great experience and the team is doing very well, fighting for the top places."

"Of course, we’re open to listening to the interest of any club that might be welcome to Pedro and West Ham. But the reality is that everything is going very well here with the Hammers, and we’re happy," he added.

The report from CalcioMercato.it states that Italian sides Napoli and Palermo are interested in offering Obiang a return to Serie A during this month's transfer window, but after signing for the club less than a year ago, it would be something of a surprise to see the midfielder leave the club.
