Another big deal for Chelsea as they ‘resume’ negotiations for £55m Everton transfer after failed January move

Chelsea scouting reports: Amadou Onana of Everton was allegedly being looked at again by the Blues in January.

He played in 22 league games this season but missed several of them due to injuries, but he still managed to earn eight shutouts.

It’s unknown whether AC Milan will let Maignan leave, but if the Premier League team makes a large offer, they could.

Chelsea is allegedly mulling a deal for Inter Milan’s Andre Onana if they are unable to sign Maignan.

There was communication between Chelsea and the 21-year-old’s entourage following a successful first half of the English season, but he remained at Goodison Park and Enzo Fernandez was bought in his place.

The Blues have reportedly renewed their interest in the former Lille midfielder as Mauricio Pochettino looks to strengthen his team ahead of the upcoming season. According to Belgian writer Sacha Tavolieri, Chelsea has’resumed negotiations’ for Onana and is now displaying a’strong interest’ in the player.

Thankfully for Pochettino, a trade might materialize because Tavolieri has claimed that Onana is willing to leave Everton this summer and for just one season.

For Everton this season, Onana played 35 games in all competitions and was essential to Sean Dyche’s midfield in their fight for survival on the final day. The Toffees’ financial predicament, though, means that the option exists for the box-to-box to leave for about £55 million.

Declan Rice and Nicolo Barella are likely to sign with other teams, and Chelsea have lost out on Manuel Ugarte to Paris Saint-Germain. The west Londoners are severely lacking in midfield as Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount, and Conor Gallagher are all moving in the direction of the departure.

Todd Boehly’s willingness to approve a trade worth more than £50 million is unknown, so it’s more probable that they will want to include a player in any potential deal.
