Pedro Obiang could very well be heading for the exit door at the London Stadium this summer.
According to a report from the Sun, the Hammers are demanding £10 million for the midfielder, with Bologna, Sassuolo and Fiorentina leading the race for his signature.
The 27-year-old has been a fine servant for West Ham, since moving to east London from Sampdoria in 2015, but if they get £10 million for his services it will have to be considered as excellent business for the Hammers.
Manuel Pellegrini has plenty of central midfield options at the moment. And in truth, Obiang is nowhere near being a regular starter.
ExWHUemployee suggested that the Equatorial Guinea international could be the first name out the door this summer.
The well respected West Ham insider delivered the below response when asked which player is most likely to leave West Ham this summer:

This season should be a really exciting one for Hammers fans.
Unfortunately for Obiang, however, there are just too many quality players ahead of him in the central midfield pecking order.
And a return to Italy seems to be the ideal solution for both West Ham and the player himself.
