West Ham set to miss out on major signing as Premier League rivals offer better terms

Posted by

You can always be sure that agents are playing clubs off against each other to get the best offer for themselves and their client, and it often results in reports where a player doesn’t end up at the club they were first linked with.

West Ham have been seen as the likely destination for Lille star Amadou Onana over recent days, however, the latest reports are now claiming that Everton have come in with a better offer and the player wants to move to Goodison.

It’s suggested that Everton have matched West Ham’s actual transfer offer, but they are also willing to pay a higher wage and the player holds Frank Lampard in high esteem and that’s also playing a big part in where he wants to go.

It’s an interesting situation as the Hammers’ recent form in the league and proximity to London would usually make them the more attractive club to potential signings, while Everton came close to relegation last season so it’s a big show of faith from Onana in Lampard if he thinks they will improve this season.

The fact that this information has been made public suggests it could be a ploy from the player’s representatives to see if they can coax even more money out of West Ham, but it now looks like Onana is set to become a Toffee.

  1. Bye bye Frank, can’t find your own player first pick pocket West Ham instead ☺️ relegation trouble again for Everton, you may go even better this season and finish in the bottom three

    1. :Graham king:

      One season were we were fighting relegation

      Before then always top end of table

      Remember West Ham have been fighting relegation for years and have been relegated and then came back up. Remember Everton are still a bigger a club than West Ham. Everton have a lot more history and cups. Yes not for awhile but remember West Ham are not a big club I will say your a big club if you start fighting for Europe and win sun cups over a 10year period.

      Moyes will always be a Everton supporter and long serving manager. He only came to you because we went for Angelotti.

      Learn your football & who is the bigger club and remember signings you have taken from us and orther teams

    2. Maybe he thinks Everton are a better prospect. Frank has won trophies as a player and he will pass on his knowledge to the players what has Moyes won?

  2. West Ham fans at there best. Look at the history.

    Give Frank a chance

    I remember when West Ham did not want Moyes now look you think he is God Everton made Moyes
