West Ham United midfielder Pedro Obiang is on the verge of an £8m (€8.9m) switch to Sassuolo.
The Evening Standard follows up Sky Sport Italia’s earlier report by writing Obiang will have a medical at Sassuolo this week.
The 27-year-old is no stranger to Serie A, having played for Sampdoria between 2008 and 2015.
He made 116 appearances for West Ham since arriving four years ago but never truly established himself in their midfield.
The Equatorial Guinea international will join Hamed Traore in a new-look Neroverdi engine room.
