Everton: Toffees interested in Amadou Onana

Everton: Toffees interested in Amadou Onana -Everton News

Everton are reportedly now interested in a move to sign LOSC Lille defensive midfielder Amadou Onana.

The Lowdown: Midfielders wanted

It has been reported that the Goodison Park outfit are now preparing a new bid for Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, while it is thought that they also hold an interest in Jesse Lingard.

It is clear that Frank Lampard wants to strengthen in the middle of the park, and that could mean bringing in more than one player in that area – perhaps one attacking and one defensive-minded.

The Latest: Onana interest

As per Het Laatste Nieuws (via Sport Witness), the Merseyside club, as well as both West Ham United and Leicester City, are now showing an interest in Onana.

The Hammers have already had a bid turned down for the Belgium international, as Lille’s president, Olivier Letang, does not want to let him go for less than €40m (£33.8m).

Everton fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Difficult

After recording consecutive losses in their financial accounts, it is unclear how much money the Toffees will be able to spend this window, even with the sale of Richarlison to Totenham Hotspur.

They may not be able to afford both Gibbs-White and Onana, and so may have to pick between the two.

The latter, who has been dubbed a ‘huge talent‘ by talent scout Jacek Kulig, was a mainstay in Lille’s team last season, featuring in all eight of their UEFA Champions League matches (Transfermarkt), while his average of 1.5 tackles per game was the sixth-best in the squad (WhoScored).

Nonetheless, he is only 20 years of age, and so the Blues can really benefit from his development over the next few years, should they choose to sign him.
