Liverpool: Report names Reds as Amadou Onana suitors

Liverpool: Report names Reds as Amadou Onana suitors -Liverpool News

Liverpool have been named as potential suitors for the signing of LOSC Lille midfielder Amadou Onana in a report from German news outlet MOPO (via Sport Witness).

The lowdown: Onana impressing in France

Since joining the French Ligue 1 club in the summer of 2021 from HSV Hamburg, the 20-year-old starlet has been on an upwards trajectory in terms of form.

Recently hailed for producing his ‘best match ever’ by Football Wonderkids on Twitter, Onana appears to be catching the eye.

Indeed, he bagged the only goal in Lille’s 1-0 win against Nantes at the weekend, also taking the ball from the opposition a whopping 11 times, and now a report from Germany claims that the Reds are among the admirers.

The latest: ‘Growing’ interest

It’s claimed by MOPO, as translated via SW, that Liverpool are ‘hot’ for the Belgium Under 21 ace, who is also wanted by West Ham.  The report states that ‘several Premier League clubs are vying’ for the defensive-minded midfielder with interest from Anfield ‘now growing’.

Hamburg are watching on closely, as they will be due a sell-on fee from Lille if the French outfit cash in.

He has previously admitted to a desire to follow a similar career path to Divock Origi, saying ‘sign me up immediately’ at the prospect of joining a big club like Real Madrid or Liverpool.

The verdict: One for the future

As both Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain approach the final 12 months of their contracts on Merseyside, Jurgen Klopp may well dip into the transfer market this summer.

All of Jordan Henderson, Thiago and James Milner are seemingly in need of constant fitness management and therefore add to the need for further reinforcements in Klopp’s squad.

Standing at 6 foot 3 and boasting impressive attributes in both defensive and attacking traits (WhoScored), the talented Belgian would be a smart addition for new sporting director Julian Ward at Anfield.
