Pedro Obiang: Sampdoria midfielder flattered by Manchester City link

According to reports in Italy, the Spanish midfielder is a summer target for the current Premier League champions.

And the Spain Under 21 international of Equatoguinean descent claims it is good to be linked with a switch to England even if he is happy at Sampdoria.

"I am being flattered by reports in the Italian press but nothing is done yet," the 20-year-old told Sky Sports.

"I have a contract until 2016 and I do not think they want to sell me.

"I am settled here and I like the life but to be honest it is good to be linked with clubs going places like City where there are big stars and a very good coach who is a legend here at my present club."

City boss Roberto Mancini played more than 500 games for Sampdoria in a 15-year stay at the Genoa club.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
