West Ham and Moyes must be be plotting for Onana to play in front of the defence to be targeting him as a potential replacement for Rice, and as a player who isn’t afraid to get stuck in and clear the danger, he could indeed be a great protector of the backline for Moyes.

The 2022 World Cup participant won 43 tackles last season which was the second-highest success rate throughout his squad, via FBRef, not to mention that he averaged 1.8 aerial wins per top-flight game and is a dominant force with his sheer physicality, standing at 6 foot 3.

Everton’s talisman is also capable of contributing to efforts in the final third having provided two assists and scored one goal himself in the previous campaign, with his all-round game having seen him dubbed a “one-man army” by talent scout Jacek Kulig, so should the opportunity present itself, this is a no-brainer of a deal to complete.
