West Ham’s David Moyes serious about signing Everton star

According to journalist Alan Nixon, David Moyes is demonstrating a genuine interest in acquiring Everton’s talented player, Amadou Onana, and West Ham is prepared to secure the transfer if the right price is offered, writes the HammerNews.

West Ham supporters are well aware that Everton swooped in at the last minute last summer, beating them to the £33 million signing of Onana. Despite West Ham having an accepted bid on their fourth attempt, the Toffees enticed Onana with a greater assurance of a starting role, leading to Moyes reportedly abandoning the deal.

Onana showcased impressive skills and leadership for his young age during his time at Everton. It appears that West Ham is hopeful that the second attempt will prove successful this summer. With Declan Rice expected to depart West Ham for a record fee, Moyes will have the funds to acquire a high-quality replacement. West Ham has been linked with various players such as Yunus Musah, Kalvin Phillips, Joao Palhinha, and James Ward-Prowse.

However, in an exclusive article on his Patreon account, journalist Nixon reveals that West Ham is once again pursuing Onana, and Everton would be willing to sell him for approximately £40 million.

“Moyes wants powerful Belgian Onana to replace Declan Rice and the Goodison club may be willing to sell for between £40-50 million,” Nixon said on his Patreon.

“The Hammers chief wanted Onana when he left Lille last summer only to lose out to Everton where he started well but was less of a regular under Sean Dyche in the closing weeks.

“Moyes has the funds to pay the fee and a big contract but he will have to convince Onana that this is the right move. Everton are already looking at signing a new midfielder to replace Onana.”
