Multiple sources in England are reporting that Dutch Eredivise giants’ goalkeeper Andre Onana Onana is a subject of transfer interest from English Premier League strugglers Arsenal FC of London. The Londoners are set to be preparing a £7 bid for the 2019 African goalkeeper of the year though awaiting the court of arbitration verdict on his one-year suspension first.
This comes barely weeks after the newly-crowned Eredivise champions halted contract talks with their 24-year old Cameroonian shot stopper.
Onana’s current contract at the Cryuiff Arena runs till the summer of 2022 and Ajax wanted to extend the relationship but unfortunately for the Club that now looks impossible as Onana has his eyes away from Amsterdam.
Last summer, he had a gentleman’s agreement with Ajax officials to spend the 2020-2021 season at the Cryuiff Arena before finding a new challenge.
The former Fundesport Academy trainee was linked with a couple of Clubs last summer including Chelsea, PSG, Barcelona amongst others but this time around Arsenal with their problems with either Math Ryan or Bernd Leno between the sticks want the boy from Nkol-Ngok.
Since arriving Amsterdam, Andre has grown into one of the best goalkeeper in the world.
The Cameroonian joined the Dutch side in 2015 from Barcelona B and became Ajax’s undisputable first choice keeper in the 2016/2017 season. Since then, he has made 122 appearances in all competitions.
In the 2019-2020 season, Onana was involved in 39 games, conceded 37 goals in all competitions with 15 clean sheets from 3500 minutes of football unfortunately his subsequent season was curtailed by a UEFA ban for involuntarily consuming a ban substance.
Before his February 2021 one-year suspension from football activities, he helped Ajax Amsterdam to the top of the Dutch championship.
Onana has contributed in winning two dutch league titles with the third abandoned in the Corona Virus punctuated season.
He can also be credited for dutch domestic cup won for the Ajax faithfuls.
