Inter snaps-up Onana for free
Andrea Onana is set to leave ajax at the end of June 2022. The Dutch champion goalkeeper has been outspoken about his desire to leave Ajax. However, he wasn’t bent on leaving to any other destination than Inter Milan.
Andrea Onana, 25, is set to leave Ajax when his contract expires at the end of June for free as he failed to sign an extension with Ajax. However, the Italian giants are looking for a long-term replacement for their man in between the sticks, Samir Handanovic. Giuseppe Meazza has been keen to make Cameroon international their priority option.
VAR247 gathered that Andrea Onana joined Ajax on the 14th of January, 2014 after he graduated from Barcelona academy. He has since then risen to prominence for the Dutch champion and has made his mark in the Champions push for a place in the 2018 UEFA Champions League semifinals. His prowess has also extended to his national team, Cameroon, where he was a key figure for the Indomitable Lions that won the AFCON in 2017.
He is set for another outing on African soil, this time, in his homeland as his country hosts the 2021 African Cup of Nations that is scheduled to hold in January 2022.
His run of fine form and consistency has earned him a connection with other big clubs. However, Inter seems the most ideal destination for the prolific young goalkeeper. He is currently valued at €17.00m according to Transfer Market. This amount, although, not a right makeweighjt value for the goalkeeper, dropped to its low owing to the refusal of the hoal keeper to renew his contract with the Dutch Champion.
So far, the young Cameroon goalkeeper has managed to find himself in between the sticks for the Dutch Champion on 168 occasions and has since conceded 116 goals, keeping 60 clean sheets.
