The Lowdown: West Ham keeping busy…
Following on from the signings of Nayef Aguerd (Rennes), Flynn Downes (Swansea City), Alphonse Areola (Paris Saint-Germain, permanent deal) and Gianluca Scamacca (Sassuolo), it appears that West Ham are planning to sign even more players this summer.
Onana, who has been at the centre of West Ham transfer talks, is also still a major target as C&H now share an interesting update on the club’s pursuit of the 20-year-old.
The Latest: Insider shares Onana update…
According to the insider’s information, Moyes personally has his ‘heart set’ on signing the Belgium international.
As well as this, it is also believed that West Ham are well and truly still attempting to agree a deal for Onana as a London Stadium ‘source’ explains that the Irons are ‘trying’ to sign him.
The Verdict: Make the move?
Standing at a colossal 6 foot 5, Onana would add some real steel and provide an interesting alternative to the likes of Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek in front of Moyes’ back four.
Having already earned call-ups for a star-studded Belgium national squad, this further highlights the player’s real potential and explains why West Ham’s manager is very eager to get him through the door at the London Stadium.
However, as the new English top-flight campaign commences imminently, Hammers chiefs will need to start progressing in talks if they want to have Onana in claret and blue for the 2022/23 campaign.
