West Ham have had a bid for the transfer of Lille midfield star Amadou Onana accepted.

Our ITK ExWHUemployee has confirmed that the bid, believed to be around £35m with add ons, has been approved by the French side with now personal terms to agree.

The Belgium international midfielder is considered a huge young talent in world football, with plenty of suitors so negotiations may take time as West Ham will want to keep wages in line with the existing structure.

Ex however has revealed previously that the player is keen to move to the Premier League, so we hope the club are able to table an offer that is acceptable to all parties.

Our man-in-the-know has also revealed that an offer is in for Burnleys Max Cornet, who’s agent Will Salthouse has has various dealings with West Ham previously which could prove beneficial.

Ex will keep our fans up to date on the progress of these deals and others via Patreon.
