The Athletic: Liverpool eyeing big Irons target

Liverpool are interested in signing Amadou Onana from Lille, according to The Athletic.

West Ham have seen two bids rejected for the midfielder.

And it now appears that there is plenty of interest in signing the player, who has impressed during his time in Ligue 1.

The Athletic reports that Liverpool are now in the queue to secure his signature, along with a clutch of other Premier League clubs.

Arsenal, Newcastle and newly-promoted Nottingham Forest are all said to have run the rule over him.

The Hammers are so far the only club to make a formal bid and recently saw an offer worth around £25m knocked back.

The Athletic does claim that Onana is likely to move to London when he leaves Lille, but it isn’t clear exactly where he’ll be going.

The 20-year-old has a contract until 2026 and Lille are under little pressure to sell, given the sheer amount of suitors for the once-capped Belgium international.

  1. Why would he want to go and sit on the bench mostly at Liverpool plus they won’t win the premier while city are around and also told that he wants to live in London not in scouseland . Probably wants his wheels left on his motor overnight . And enjoy London’s sights and amenities offered . Moyes stop dithering and get this done with scamm coming too and raum before others Nick them while you sleep. You don’t see other clubs taking long time to do their business like we do from one to another and bids below the asking prices that are a joke .

  2. ok so we lost diaz and nunez to liverpool, did we learn anything by that, this could be number 3 if we dont pay the correct fee, why haggle to save 3 mill, what we may lose is far greater than 3 million, but then we are west ham. lol we know what happens already. lol

    • Why would he want to come to a penny pinching club with no ambition & who has a manager who takes an eternity to make a decision & is renowned for not giving youngstets a chance against a club who have tons of ambition & a manager who gives young players the opportunties to show their talents

    • Agree wholeheartedly. The fans know the penny pinching attitude of the owners .Most transfer markets are deja vu.I thought Kretinsky was touted as our financial saviour? More frustration ahead as I see it.Same old same old.

  3. It’s not about money it’s where the player and more probably his agent wants him to go
    Liverpool well established top 4 club in Champions league will always beat us. That’s what happened to Nunez. One thing you can say we are great at spotting the right players for top 4 clubs!
    Keep digging around for those so called lesser players and then coach them to be up with the best ie Rice and Bowen
