Everton are reportedly shaping up a move for Pedro Obiang this summer – and West Ham fans on Twitter are not at all pleased.
It is understood that the Hammers would only consider offers starting at around £15million for the Spanish midfielder, which has left some fans reeling by saying that is simply not enough.
There could be hope for the London Stadium faithful though as the Mirror also says that the Irons are looking to seal a new deal with Obiang, who has two years left on the four-year contract he signed when he moved from Sampdoria for £4.3million in 2015.
Obiang has been in good form for West Ham this season and, although Everton are about to embark on European football next season, the Hammers fans really don’t want to see him go.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Hoping Obiang stays. Just found his form for us. #whufc still need to add a player who controls a game in midfield can't always be lanzini

Apparently we rate obiang at 15m because Everton have come sniffing. Come off it. They rate their McCarthy @ 20m. Obiang is twice the player

Obiang made 30 appearances for the Hammers this season in what was not the best season the club have ever had.
Despite this, the midfielder was perhaps one of the better performers in Slaven Bilic’s side and proved to be the driving force in the centre of the pitch.
