Arsenal ‘very seemingly’ to signal Onana this summer time per reporter


Football.London’s Chris Wheatley will no doubt wow the entire Arsenal fan base with an extremely encouraging update on the Gunners’ interest in signing Andre Onana from Ajax this summer.

Wheatley was named in the starting XI of an Arsenal supporter for the best accounts for Gooners on Twitter, with the reporter serving as a goalkeeper.

Wheatley then teased that “Onana” was his name when another fan repeated that he had to be good at getting the ball off his back to start between the sticks.

The fan then asked Wheatley about the chances of Arsenal recruiting Andre Onana from Ajax, to which the Football.London journalist replied that the signing was “very likely”.

Onana is currently serving a 12-month doping ban imposed by UEFA in early February, but the Cameroonian insists that if he was unwell, he only took his wife’s medication, which is unfortunately a banned substance.

Waiting for the outcome of the appeal, which will determine the final fee. Very likely to join.

Onana has appealed against UEFA’s suspension to the Sports Arbitration Tribunal. Goal reported that the ace’s team plans to lift the ban entirely or reduce it to at least six to eight months.

Wheatley adds that the outcome of the appeal “will determine the final fee” the Gunners will pay for the 25-year-old, suggesting he will be signed by the club regardless of the legal outcome.

NOS recently reported that the talented stopper would charge between € 6 million and € 9 million if the ban were reduced, but would be available for the minimum € 2 million fee if the verdict is upheld.

Should Onana be recruited, Mikel Arteta could have a new No. 1 and replace the Gunners from Bernd Leno, who had a mixed time with the club.

Onana has performed excellently for Ajax, to which he joined from the Barcelona Academy, with the Cameroon international playing 204 games for the Dutch powerhouses.

The stopper will still be available at a discounted price, which isn’t surprising when you consider that the 6ft3 star is just entering the final year of his contract with the Amsterdam outfit.
