West Ham United have made a third bid for Lille midfielder Amadou Onana, this time worth around £32.3 million plus add-ons.
That’s according to a report from Sky Sports who claim that the offer for the 20-year-old midfielder is being ‘seriously considered’ by Lille.

Hammers boss David Moyes is clearly still keen to bolster his central midfield ranks at the London Stadium even further still, despite the recent addition of Flynn Downes.
Amadou Onana is someone who has been on the radar of West Ham all summer long and we have already had two bids rejected for him from Lille.
Even the player’s agent is trying to force through a move away from Lille for his client.
It seems as though the Hammers have gone back in for the young Belgian ace though. And what a spectacular signing he would be for the East London outfit it, if Lille do indeed accept our offer…
West Ham make third Amadou Onana bid
Sky Sports reckon that the Hammers have made a £32.3 million plus-add-ons offer for the 20-year-old midfielder.
And this time, Lille are said to be ‘seriously considering’ the offer.
We would absolutely love to see Onana at the London Stadium.
The Belgium international would be sensational for the Hammers.
He seems to have absolutely everything needed to succeed in the English game what with its intense nature and ferocious speed and tempo.
The 6ft 5in central midfielder is an absolute giant.
He’s powerful, energetic and has everything that Moyes will be looking for in the middle of the park.
The Belgium international is equally as strong with both feet, and that’s somewhat of a rarity in the modern game.
In 32 Ligue 1 outings for Lille last season, Onana averaged 1.5 tackles and one interception per game. He made 20 passes on average per match and recorded a completion rate of 84% (Who Scored).
The 20-year-old is an absolute powerhouse of a player and would be an unreal addition to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
Onana is a really special talent. He has been described by Sport Magazine as a ‘sensational’ young player. Meanwhile, he’s been labelled as an ‘incredible’ player by Total Football Analysis.
And with West Ham making a third Onana bid, it might not be too long before we see him in the famous Claret and Blue.
