Arsenal boosted as West Ham’s bid for their target is rejected

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to add Amadou Onana to their squad in this transfer window after West Ham’s offer for him was rejected.

The midfielder has become the latest top player to emerge on the books of the Ligue 1 club.

He only joined them last season from Hamburg and quickly became one of the first names on their team sheet.

His fine performances for them made Arsenal interested, and Calciomercato reported earlier this month that Mikel Arteta wants to add him to his squad.

The Gunners reportedly spoke to the agent of the 20-year-old and were exploring the possibilities of taking him to London.

However, West Ham wanted to steal a march on them to sign him and has been unsuccessful, according to Sky Sports.

The Hammers tabled a €30M offer, but Lille wants more and rejected it.

Just Arsenal Opinion

West Ham’s approach has given us an idea of what he would cost, and we now need to act on that information.

It remains unclear how much Lille wants, but we should be able to add him to our squad if we pay 40m euros.

Lille alone will make the final decision, and it also might depend on the quantity and quality of his other suitors.

  1. LOL

    Arsenal we’re NEVER going to pay anywhere near
    what Lille are demanding for the talented young
    Belgian and the French club are in no need to sell
    on the cheap.

    Talented player but not @ £40M

    1. Arsenal as a FC will find it very difficult to compete or be amongst the top 4 in the EPL as long as we continue to conduct our transfer business like minnows,the big teams will pay whatever amount it cost to sign a marquee player in a bid to win major silverware but not AFC

  2. I’ve watched this Onana guy and I will say in strong terms that he is what Arsenal needs . He is tall, strong, a baller, marks very hard and a hard tackler. Please let’s have this guy for a DM

    1. Haha, tell us another one. Nice to hear delusion is alive and well.

      This year you will be back to your typical stepping stone selves.

  3. Onana is not the finish article yet, but boast huge potential.

    Another midfielder worth serious consideration.

  4. Trade him for Pepe + 39m. We really need to sell so many people, we can’t really make strides as they are dragging us behind

  5. What amazes me is our transfer dealings. Other clubs can offload their players who are in the last year of there contracts at 45_ 50M while the best we always seem to sell at is 10_ 15😔

  6. Playing well for Lille does not guarantee that someone will play as well in the PL.

    Pepe, Laca…
