Fabrizio Romano: Andre Onana open to joining Arsenal

Andre Onana wants to join Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

The popular Italian journalist, Fabrizio Romano, Onana is open to joining Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal this summer.

Onana has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, and Romano thinks that the deal could go through.

Romano said on The Arsenal Lounge:

“Onana is absolutely open to joining Arsenal, but it’s not a done deal yet. They need to wait about the situation of the ban or the suspension, they are waiting for the court to see what’s happening with Onana, how many months he will be out.”

Earlier this month, Dutch outlet NOS has claimed that the Gunners are readying an approach to sign the Ajax goalkeeper.

Bernd Leno is the first-choice goalkeeper at Arsenal, there is a genuine concern over his long-term future at the club.

The north London club are looking to sign a new goalkeeper, and they are planning an offer for Onana.

The situation of Onana

The Cameroon international could be available on a cut-price deal with his Ajax contract due to expire at the end of next season.

He has been banned for 12 months from February this year after being found guilty of taking a prohibited drug for medical treatment.

The goalkeeper has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and a hearing this month could reduce his punishment by around four months.

Leno reportedly wants to leave Arsenal, and if he departs, Onana would be a fantastic addition for the Gunners.
