West Ham: £32.5m Amadou Onana offer made to Lille

West Ham: £32.5m Amadou Onana offer made to Lille -West Ham News

West Ham United have submitted a third transfer offer for Lille midfielder Amadou Onana, believed to be worth £32.5m.

That is according to a report from the Daily Mail.

The Lowdown: Third time lucky?

The Hammers have been nothing if not persistent in their pursuit of the 20-year-old, with two bids having already been rejected by the Ligue 1 club.

An initial €23m (£19.4m) offer was turned down in early July, while an improved bid of €30m (25.5m) was also given short shrift by Les Dogues.

David Moyes, who watched the youngster in action when Lille took on Chelsea in the Champions League earlier this year, had initially believed that the 6 foot 5 Belgium international would be out of the Irons’ reach, although GSB are not prepared to give up the fight easily following this latest offer.

The Latest: West Ham make improved Onana offer

The Daily Mail reported on Saturday night that West Ham have lodged a £32.5m offer for Onana and are now awaiting Lille’s response.

The report stated that the Ligue 1 outfit are ‘mulling over the bid’, which appears to suggest that they might be willing to take the matter a bit further this time around.

The Verdict: Don’t go any higher

Considering that Onana has a modest Transfermarkt valuation of £9m, West Ham could justifiably feel that Lille are trying to fleece them if the Irons’ £32.5m bid is also rejected.

Although the 20-year-old’s stock is ‘rapidly rising’, according to the Daily Mail‘s Simon Jones, he is still quite unproven at a high level, with just one season of top-tier football under his belt.

Do you think West Ham should sign Onana?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Onana could certainly be useful for squad depth if the Hammers are unable to keep hold of Tomas Soucek, who has been linked with an exit from the club recently.

However, if Lille shut down West Ham’s latest offer, GSB may be better off admitting defeat in this transfer pursuit and look to other midfield targets instead.
