Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has told Give Me Sport that West Ham United are still waiting to hear back from Lille regarding their third offer for midfielder Amadou Onana – worth an initial £32.5million.

Onana, 20, is the subject of interest from numerous Premier League sides. It comes after an excellent 2021-22 campaign, in which he clocked up 41 appearances in all competitions for Lille having joined last summer.

Reports say Arsenal, Newcastle, Nottingham Forest, Liverpool and West Ham are among those showing interest. But the Hammers are certainly the most keen, having submitted a third bid for the one-time Belgium international.

Sheth reports that Lille are yet to give West Ham an answer regarding their latest bid. The offer, currently on the table, is worth an initial £32.5million – plus add-ons. He has a contract at Lille until the summer of 2026.

“That one is still in conversation. They had two bids rejected. The latest one was around £25m, but West Ham actually went in with the third bid; €38m (£32.5m) plus add-ons. They have not heard back from Lille.”

The Hammers need a midfielder. David Moyes has not only lost club legend Mark Noble in the middle of the park this summer, but also Alex Kral. Indeed, Kral has gone on loan to Schalke – after a poor loan with the Hammers.

His current options include Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek. Moyes has used Manuel Lanzini deeper in midfield during pre-season. Onana would be a stunning addition if they can make it happen, but Lille are yet to answer.
