Sky Sports report that multiple offers have been rejected from the Hammers, including the latest £25million proposal.

West Ham bosses have “not closed the door” on a move for Onana.

But it is believed that Arsenal are also keen on signing the youngster.

And Get French Football News claim Liverpool and Newcastle are both “interested”.

The defensive midfielder joined Lille from Hamburg a year ago for £6m.

The Prem target is known for breaking up play and is a commanding presence at 6ft 5in tall.

Onana impressed in his first season in France, making 42 appearances in total for the tenth-placed side.

He started 17 games and helped Lille to progress to the knockout rounds of the Champions League for the first time since 2007.


Onana’s good form led to his first international call up, competing in Belgium’s Nations League defeat against the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, West Ham completed the £12m transfer for Swansea star Flynn Downes last week.

Downes admits he is in dreamland after signing for his boyhood club at the London Stadium.

The 23-year-old joins the Hammers on a five-year contract – with the option of an extra year.
