Everton match West Ham bid for Lille midfielder Amadou Onana

Everton have matched West Ham United’s offer for Lille midfielder Amadou Onana, The Athletic understands.

It is believed Everton’s bid for Onana is around €30million plus add-ons.

The Athletic reported on Thursday that Everton were interested in the 20-year-old Belgium midfielder, as well as re-signing former midfielder Idrissa Gueye.

Everton stepped up their interest in Gueye, now of Paris Saint-Germain, and are keen on adding another midfield option to their squad.

The Merseyside club are also expected to ramp up their search for a striker, following Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s injury. The England international picked up a knock in training on Tuesday.

Calvert-Lewin and Solomon Rondon are Everton’s only senior strikers, after Richarlison’s departure to Tottenham Hotspur.

Rondon, however, is suspended for Everton’s opening game against Chelsea on Saturday, while manager Frank Lampard confirmed Calvert-Lewin will miss the game on Wednesday.

Everton have so far brought in Dwight McNeil, James Tarkowski and Ruben Vinagre.
