West Ham United fans here in the Tavern are hoping to hold onto some of their star men, after recent injury blows have supporters fearing for their safety.
David Moyes’ side have been looking to climb further away from the dreaded relegation zone, after early season troubles have only just become a thing of the past since the Scot has taken over.
Although, after suffering three major injury blows over the past week, the Hammers are hoping to hold on to another one of their key men. As according to reports in the Sun, Inter Milan are targeting midfield maestro Pedro Obiang in what would be a loan deal with a view to a permanent move.
Indeed, with David Moyes already setting his sights on bolstering his own midfield this window, this could provide the Hammers with Obiang as leverage in an attempt to secure a target of their own.
After West Ham had been in talks with the Italian club over taking Portuguese midfielder Joao Mario on loan for the remainder of the season, with a further view to a £35 million deal at expiry.
For a player that’s in his third season with the Hammers, he’s really become a favourite under Moyes after producing a quite fantastic goal against Spurs to go with his consistently great performances.
But, for a player that’s attracted a lot of interest from European and Premier League sides over the years, it looks as if the Spaniard may be living out his last days at the London Stadium.
The midfielder has been a quality acquisition ever since he joined the Hammers, and now with all the speculation surrounding him they should look to use it to their advantage with a move for target Joao Mario.
West Ham fans… Thoughts on Obiang interest? Let us know down below!!!
