Shame to see Obiang go. I really thought he’d kick on after his first season but it hasn’t quite worked out, a bit like Kouyate. We’d 100% need to bring in a replacement though...

Selling Obiang to pay for Medal, maybe?

Seems odd if so.

If MP can work his magic on Medel, like he has seemingly done so far with Nasri, I’m all for it. Would give us some proper bite in the middle.

Rice, Noble, Snodgrass, Wilshere, Sanchez, Nasri, Lanzini can all play in a central two. Obviously plenty are out injured, but Obiang is one we can get some cash for.

Obiang for Medel would be ridiculously

Pedro strikes me as a Pell Boy kinda player. I love the guy.

Obiang 26 for Medel 31 seems odd

If Obiang is off, I’d think Hayden from Newcastle would be the logical choice. He’s put in a transfer request wanting the move back down south for family reasons. Not too expensive (both wages and transfer fee) still only 23. Similar playing style and build to Obiang with imho a bit more upside. I thought he was the pick of Newcaste’s midfield against Chelsea. I also believe like Wilshere he is from a West Ham family being born in Chelmsford and having grown up in Southend. Another bonus is he’s home grown.

Not selling him and wanting €30m is a weird position to be in.

Shame if Pedro goes but if he wants regular football I don't blame him.

Imagine if we are actually interested in Diawara and start routinely paying £30m+ for players :o Could the money be starting to kick in?

Although it would be lovely to actually bring in the type of midfielder that we need, presumably the most likely player that any Obiang money would be spent on is Shelvey......as we’ve already approached Newcastle (allegedly) a few weeks back.

Diawara seems to come from the Diop/Anderson profile.

If Obiang goes, I would love and I mean love it in a Keegan sense, if we tested Marsielle for 25 for Sanson, lovely player would add so much quality, right age too. I hope we don't look domestically as no value or people suggest players who are more suited to relegation battling teams
