Pellegrini says West Ham will replace Sampdoria target Obiang

West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini has remained coy on Pedro Obiang's departure, but insists the midfielder will be replaced if he leaves.

The Spanish midfielder is expected to join Serie A outfit Sampdoria after previously leaving the club to join the Hammers in 2015.

But when asked about the 26-year-old, Pellegrini refused to confirm the speculation.

"I don't talk about individuals until it's official," he said.

"We will see what happens. If any players must go, we are going to find replacements for them."
