With a lot of work to be done by both sides on the summer transfer market this season, West Ham and Arsenal are turning their attention to France.
Both clubs could do with an extra man, or two, in midfield, and Lille’s Amadou Onana falls into the category of player either side could recruit.
We say this because Foot Mercato have an article on the Lille player’s future, with it explained that West Ham and Arsenal ‘have supervised him’ during the course of the previous campaign.
Costing the Ligue 1 side just €7m last summer, they could be looking to make a quick buck this summer, as the website explain the player ‘could leave’ in the upcoming transfer window.
Having failed to qualify for Europe following a season in the Champions League, some money will be needed to balance the books, and while players such as Renato Sanches, Jonathan David or Sven Botman could be sold, a door might be opened for others.
Onana is one such player who has ‘a chance of leaving’, having received an ‘exit pass’ from the club’s hierarchy, who know they need to ‘gather money’ in the near future.
So far, there is no ‘concrete offer’, but West Ham, Arsenal and AS Monaco are all considering him, especially with the latter preparing to sell Aurélien Tchouaméni this summer.
