West Ham United want £10 million as transfer fee for Pedro Obiang, according to The Sun.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Serie A clubs Bologna and Sassuolo are interested in signing Obiang from Premier League outfit West Ham in the summer transfer window.

 

The Hammers reportedly want to sign two more players this summer, and perceive the 27-year-old midfielder as “expendable” and want to sell him to raise some cash, according to the report.

According to The Sun, Bologna and Sassuolo have contacted West Ham over a loan deal for the Equatorial Guinea international, but the London outfit prefer a straight sale and want £10m as transfer fee.
