Arsenal still haven’t submitted a bid for Andre Onana, as the Ajax goalkeeper starts to draw interest from elsewhere.
Goal report that despite Arsenal’s close monitoring of Andre Onana’s situation, their discussions with the goalkeeper’s representatives, and the reduction in his suspension, they’re still yet to make an official offer to sign him.
Onana is keen to move to Arsenal, though he does want to be first choice at his new club. That creates a complication, as the Gunners don’t know whether or not Bernd Leno will stay for next season, and they might not know until later in the summer.
In the meantime, Onana is attracting ‘strong interest’ from around Europe, including from France and from a club that finished above Arsenal in the Premier League last season.
Previous reports put Arsenal in pole position for Onana and suggested he was very likely to join the club this summer.
But if Arsenal don’t make a bid before long, Ajax are likely to accept whatever offer they get from elsewhere – they don’t want to lose him on a free transfer next summer.
Onana is serving a suspension after the banned substance, Furosemide, was found in his urine sample. He claimed he took it by accident after it was prescribed to his wife.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled no significant fault could be attributed to Onana, reducing the ban from 12 months to nine as a result. He’s available for matches from November 3rd and available for training from September 3rd.
