Pedro Obiang has arrived for his Sassuolo medical. “I return to Serie A as a more mature player” after the West Ham United experience.
The 27-year-old had spent practically his entire career in Italy with Sampdoria, progressing from the youth academy to the senior squad.
He was sold to West Ham for €6m in the summer of 2015 and is now back in the Peninsula four years later for a reported €8.9m.
“I return to Serie A as a more mature player after my time in the Premier League,” the Equatorial Guinea international told Sky Sport Italia as he landed this evening.
“The Sassuolo opportunity came about before the transfer window opened, with a call from (Coach Roberto) De Zerbi.”
