Everton and Leicester City seem to be ahead of West Ham United in the chase for Amadou Onana this summer.
The midfielder arrived at Lille from Hamburger SV and his performances in the debut season in France has caught the attention of the Premier League trio.
According to Het Laatste Nieuws, who add that Everton, Leicester and West Ham have also shown interest in him.
David Moyes’ side went ahead and tabled an offer to land the Belgium international, but their proposal of €23m was already ‘thrown in the bin’.
The French club’s president, Olivier Létang, firmly believes in Onana’s talent and doesn’t want to let go of the midfielder for less than €40m.
There’s no clarity or even a suggestion whether West Ham will make an offer in that region to convince Létang for Onana’s transfer.
Apart from mentioning Everton and Leicester’s interest, the report doesn’t provide any additional information about these two clubs.
Lille have appointed Paulo Fonseca as their new manager and HLN questions whether Onana will be able to fit into his style of play.
Meanwhile, his agent continues to look for interested clubs, clearly having already found Everton, Leicester and West Ham.
