West Ham United midfielder Pedro Obiang is keen on returning to Italy in the January transfer window amid interest from Fiorentina, according to The Daily Mail.

It has been reported that Fiorentina want to sign Obiang from West Ham this month.

According to Gianlucadimarzio.com, Fiorentina are finalising a deal with West Ham over the transfer of the 26-year-old midfielder.

It has been reported that the Serie A outfit will offer the Hammers an initial transfer fee of €10 million (£8.92m) plus €1m (£0.89m) in bonus, with the former Sampdoria star to sign a four-and-a-half contract.

According to Gianlucadimarzio.com, Fiorentina directors believe that Obiang is the missing piece in their January transfer window.

Leaving West Ham

Obiang joined West Ham from Sampdoria in the summer of 2015, and the performances of the midfielder for the Hammers have been mixed.

The 26-year-old is struggling to get into the West Ham starting lineup at the moment, and it does make sense for him to leave the London club for Fiorentina in the January transfer window.
