Having arrived in east London in the summer of 2015 from Serie A side Samdoria, the Spanish Under-21 international endured something of an up-and-down first campaign in the Premier League, and was often left on the bench by manager Slaven Bilic.
However, the 24-year-old really seems to be finding his feet this season.
According to stat compiling website WhoScored, Obiang has attempted 45 tackles in his 14 Premier League appearances so far this season, and has been successful with 41 of them.
Thats a stunning percentage of 91.1% – higher than any other player in the English top-flight.
Obiang is yet to find the net in any competitive games this season, but with his input in other areas, who needs goals?
Could some of Europe’s biggest teams be looking to snaffle up his signature in the summer, just like Chelsea did with N’Golo Kante?
What do you think?
