West Ham agree fee for Amadou Onana but deal far from completion with personal terms yet to be agreed.
The fee is understood to be worth £33.5million (€40m) including add-ons, and came as a result of the Hammers’ fourth bid for the player.
West Ham remain in discussion with Burnley over the signing of Maxwel Cornet.
The Hammers are proposing an initial loan deal with an option to make the deal permanent that would become an obligation to buy based on certain player and club performances.
West Ham have not given up on signing Filip Kostic from Eintracht Frankfurt but are focussing on other deals.

Kostic is represented by the World Soccer Agency (WSA) – the same agency that looks after Gianluca Scamacca.
Selling Issa Diop this summer has not be ruled out despite the injury to summer signing Nayef Aguerd.
West Ham are yet to receive an offer which matches their valuation for centre-back Diop, with Fulham understood to have a bid on the table worth £15m including add-ons.
Cornet was not involved in the Burnley squad for their opening Sky Bet Championship game at Huddersfield Town, with manager Vincent Kompany saying he wasn’t at the “right physical level”.
