West Ham United must go all out for Piotr Zielinski after Amadou Onana transfer blow

West Ham have suffered a massive blow after they lost Amadou Onana, who is on the verge of joining Everton.

Fabrizio Romano, the Guardian journalist, shared on Twitter on 5 August that the Toffees have reached a full agreement to sign the Lille midfielder.

The Hammers also made an offer, which was accepted, but they still failed to lure him to the London Stadium.

David Moyes has suggested the Hammers have a lot of business left to do this summer, and that they are looking at quality players who can take the club to the next level.

West Ham Football Twitter account, run by the Associate Editor of Claret and Hugh, shared what Moyes told in his press conference ahead of the new season.

With that in mind, the Hammers must do everything to secure the signing of Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski.

There’s no point dilly-dallying with negotiations over a few million. To get quality players, you need to spend big.

Give him the contract he wants and lure him to the London stadium. Offer Napoli the amount that they can refuse, and add him to the squad asap – it’s now or never.

Bolstering the midfield is a priority for the Hammers. Onana would have been a fabulous signing, but there’s no point in thinking about that. It’s a transfer blow, and the club must move on.

Zielinski is a highly experienced midfielder, having made over 280 appearances for Napoli. He spent all his life in Italy, and showcased his quality for the Polish national team.

ExWHUemployee reported on 28 July that the Hammers are still in negotiation to sign the former Empoli midfielder, and they must revisit now and make his signing a priority.

He has made over 280 appearances for the club, and he is that sort of player who can actually make a difference to the side. If Moyes really wants to bring in quality players, then he must do it now.
