With West Ham struggling, they make look to freshen up their squad come January.
Whether Obiang would be one of the players that they may consider cashing-in on is up for debate.
What is not up for debate however, is Obiang’s defensive contribution to his side. He is a combative midfield player that is also comfortable on the ball.
Newcastle will likely sell Cheick Tiote is January, and at this stage of their career’s, Obiang would no doubt be an upgrade.
The Spaniard is only 24 years-old, so may feel that he shouldn’t have to drop down to the Championship. However, a good offer may tempt him to do so and offer competition in a position where we already have quality.
