Amadou Onana representatives share major update amid Everton transfer links

Amadou Onana wants to move to Everton this summer, according to the agents of the Lille midfielder after a bid was reportedly made.

According to Belgian media outlet Het Nieuwsblad, the 20-year-old’s representatives have confirmed that a move to Goodison Park is what he wants.

This comes after they reported that a bid of £33.6million had been submitted to the Ligue 1 club with the Toffees closing in on his services ahead of West Ham.

“And Amadou wants to go to Everton himself,” said the Belgian midfielder’s entourage.

Snap him up

If the agents are saying this then there’s clearly a lot to the story and Everton must be really good at convincing him to join over the Hammers.

They’re in a better shape financially and can also offer him European football.

The Toffees, on the other hand, were in a relegation battle last season and had to sell their best player to be able to spend in this summer.

However, a midfielder was a priority from the outset and it seems like they will be signing two in the form of Idrissa Gueye and Onana.

While one is in the twilight of his career, the other one is just getting started and is already putting in remarkable performances at the age of 20.

Hopefully, there aren’t too many delays in this one and Everton snap up his services in the coming days.
