West Ham United have reportedly changed their minds after initially giving the all-clear for Fiorentina to buy Pedro Obiang at €10m.
Multiple Italian sources last night stated it was a done deal worth €10m plus performance-related bonuses.
However, this morning Sportitalia claim West Ham patron David Sullivan changed his mind and decided to resist the offer.
Obiang was all set to sign a four-and-a-half-year contract with the Viola.
The 26-year-old Guinea international spent most of his career in Italy, coming up through the Sampdoria youth academy and leaving for €6m in 2015.
Part of the problem is West Ham’s failure to find a replacement, as it’s also reported another offer for Napoli midfielder Amadou Diawara was rejected.
