Arsenal is back in the race for Andre Onana

With an unclear goalkeeping situation, Arsenal look to seize Andre Onana of Ajax. Onana has been linked with a move away from Ajax. At the moment, Lyon and Arsenal lead the race to land the 25-year-old.

Arsenal were believed to have been in the driving seat in pursuit for Onana’s signature, only for Lyon to overtake them in negotiations. This left gaffer Arteta considering a move for Sheffield United’s Aaron Ramsdale instead.

Onana seemed all set to join Lyon. However, the move has not gone through. There is now some confusion over the situation. The Cameroon international is holding out as he wishes to join a ‘bigger club’. A statement like this could be a plus for Arsenal as they reignite their interest in the 25-year-old.

Onana’s doping ban has been cut to 9 months, concluding on the 4th of November

The Cameroonian is currently serving a 12-month ban for doping. He has protested his innocence, claiming he took the substance accidentally. This saw the duration of his suspension reduced. Nonetheless, he won’t be available until November.

The current circumstances are coupled with the fact that Onana is out of contract in the summer. Ajax are reluctant to let him leave for a cut-price fee. Onana may go for a seven-figure sum despite being rated as one of Europe’s best.

The Gunners are currently unclear regarding their main man Bernd Leno. Runar Alex Runarsson failed to impress. This prompted the loan addition of Matt Ryan in January. Yet, Arsenal did not sign him, instead of letting him join Real Sociedad.

An Absolute Bargain

As a result, they are having to look elsewhere. Their search brought them to the Netherlands, specifically Ajax. Arsenal had been pushing for Onana for the past few months. His refusing Lyon could prove to be a turning point.

The 25-year-old keeper has won two Eredivisie titles during his stay at Ajax. He has made over 200 appearances, keeping 83 clean sheets. He has even played in the 2018-19 Champions League semi-finals.

If successful, Onana may be the best value-for-money signing. His move to Lyon would have costed around €6,000,000.
