West Ham United could complete double deal for Jesse Lingard and Amadou Onana this week
West Ham United are confident of sealing a double deal to sign Jesse Lingard and Amadou Onana this week, according to the Evening Standard.
The newspaper has reported on their website that the Irons have lodged a £30million bid plus add-ons for the latter, who is now pushing for the move despite Lille not responding as of yet.
On top of that, Lingard is expected to make a decision on his future this week and the Hammers believe they are in pole position to sign the England international.
One obstacle that could be in the way of Lingard arriving at the London Stadium again is lucrative offers from Saudi Arabia, that he is seriously considering.
This could be a mental week at the London Stadium.
Fabrizio Romano has also reported on Monday [18 July] that the Irons have now agreed on personal terms with Chelsea forward Armando Broja.
The Albanian international is now jetting into the United Kingdom for talks as Rob Newman looks to get a permanent deal over the line now.
After appearing as though we had stalled in the summer market after the arrivals of Alphonse Areola, Nayef Aguerd and Flynn Downes, we are now stepping up numerous gears.
Signing Lingard, Onana and Broja in one week would most likely see our summer business done.
Apart form the possibility of a new left-back, David Moyes will be delighted with his squad should this blockbuster triple transfer blitz be finalised.
Onana would add incredible steel to midfield, Lingard would bridge that gap to the final third that we missed so much last season, and Broja would finally bring to an end our striker woes.
West Ham United are back in a big way.
After smashing the Premier League two years in a row, no one can say it was a fluke under Moyes, and with these signings now looking likely, we are there to stay at the top for a long, long time.
