EXWHUEmployee Reveals West Ham Are Eyeing £120M Double Raid On Relegation Threatened Rival

West Ham are keeping an eye on Everton duo Jordan Pickford and Amadou Onana, according to ExWHUEmployee.

The insider claims that the Hammers may be tempted to make bids for the two players if the Toffees are relegated from the Premier League this weekend:

“There is also some interest in Jordan Pickford and Amadou Onana should Everton drop.”

Both Pickford and Onana are rumoured to have price tags of around £60m, but their value is likely to drop if Everton find themselves in the Championship.

Pickford only signed a new contract back in February, but the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea had been credited with an interest in the England number one before then.

With Onana, West Ham were the team that missed out when the Belgian opted to make the £33m switch to Goodison Park instead last summer. He has subsequently been linked with Arsenal and Chelsea.

Why are West Ham pursuing the pair?

Lukasz Fabianski could leave the Hammers at the end of the season, if the London club don’t trigger their option to extend his contract by an additional year. Pickford could, therefore, be a replacement for the Pole.

Manager David Moyes is clearly a big fan of Onana, having already tried to sign him once before, so it is not a surprise that he would be interested in buying the 21-year-old if Everton can’t escape relegation.
