Report: New bid to be tabled soon

West Ham are set to table a new bid for Lille midfielder Amadou Onana this week, according to reports in France.

Foot Mercato reports that the Hammers remain hot on the trail of the 20-year-old.

We reported earlier this week that there is real interest in Onana and the Irons are continuing to work on a deal in an attempt to bring him to the London Stadium.

West Ham have seen bids rejected for Onana already, and the French report now claims the Irons are considering tabling a fresh bid before the end of the week.

It remains to be seen how high they will go but it is likely to be an offer around €40m, which equates to £33.4m, and would be a major investment for the Belgium international.

He plays primarily as a defensive midfielder but is also capable of moving forward into a central midfield role, and has made a total of 41 appearances for Lille.

  1. We need to get Onana over the line he is a great player & will get better . He would improve us . I know we need a left sided player too we need to see if we can conclude at least those 2 before the season starts . If we get our targets I would feel optimistic of top 4 ⚒

  2. Will be a really good signing for us if we can get him, definitely the level of quality we should be going after and with so much potential, two footed 6’5′ good passer of the ball and great tackler, if we put him and Rice together we would have two ball carrying midfielders, will also provide us some security if Dec leaves or get’s injured, him Soucek and Rice in midfield would really create a bermude triangle for opposing sides where there attacks disappear without trace and protect the back four. Now all we need is for the fee and wages to be agreed COYI!!!

  3. I often wonder how many players we have lost out on due to this incremental out in the public style of transfer dealings.
    I don’t think that it is simply a case of us wanting Onana, but also a case of NEEDING him. Every man and his dog knows that Onana will become Declan’s eventual successor in less than a year, and he will be out of our financial reach next year with the big guns looking for fresh meat.
    So my advice to West Ham is to gird their collective cojones, bite the bullet and use a little forward planning to get this one over the line.
    I don’t care for Piotr Zielinski, he doesn’t want to come and I’m not interested in seeing him here, whereas Onana wants to come and I believe an attraction would be playing alongside Declan (before he leaves).
