Unable to find a global agreement for the transfer of Neapolitan Piotr Zielinski, West Ham has decided to return to the charge about the Lille resident Amadou Onana (20 years old). The two men do not have the same profile, but the Hammers desperately need reinforcements in midfield to support Declan Rice & Co.
Onana ready to take up the challenge
A new offer has been launched (€40m including bonuses), with London leaders willing to meet the demands of their Lille counterparts. Linked until June 2026 with the Mastiffs, the Belgian international is also watched by some more upscale formations, but this is a new step towards the European summits.
Cornet and Maupay for the future?
In addition, the team managed by David Moyes is also looking for a left piston, a central defender and a striker (Neal Maupay from Brighton and Alassane Pléa from Mönchengladbach are options). Among the priorities of the moment for the first position, we find in particular the former Messin and Lyonnais Maxwell Cornet (25 years old, Burnley), who could compensate for the departure of Arthur Masuaku in Besiktas. While Everton finally hesitate to align themselves with their release clause of €21m in cash, Newcastle act as their main competitor, but the WHUFC now holds the rope.
