West Ham United midfielder Pedro Obiang is on Fiorentina’s radar this January, according to reports emerging from Italy.

Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato are reporting that Fiorentina are pressing ahead with their attempts to bring Pedro Obiang back to Italy.

West Ham bought Obiang from Sampdoria in summer 2015 and he has since made 83 appearances for the Hammers in all competitions in his two and a half year stay.

Obiang, rated at £8.1m by transfermarkt, has netted two of his three West Ham goals this season.

His first was a deflected effort against Huddersfield Town and the second was a rocket against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

West Ham are trying to bring in a new defensive midfielder to compete with Obiang, Chiekhou Kouyate and Mark Noble but they might lose one.

Serie A outfit Fiorentina seem eager to bring the 25-year-old back to Italy as the 9th place team look to push up the table in the Italian top tier.

Obiang has a contract with West Ham until the summer of 2022 so it is likely that the Irons will not sell him unless they receive a substantial bid for his services.

The former Spain youth international has featured heavily under David Moyes so far and remains part of his plans.
