Breaking news!!! Chelsea set to table offer for Andre Onana of inter milan

According to Evening Standard, Chelsea is considering a bid for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana.

After finishing 12th in the Premier League, The Blues will want to add players to their roster in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Chelsea has designated Onana as their top target in their search for a new goalkeeper, as was widely anticipated.

The 27-year-old stood out for his ball-handling and shot-stopping abilities during Inter’s Champions League final loss to Manchester City.

Onana claimed he is content at Inter but is open to moving away from Stadio Giuseppe Meazza following the aforementioned game.

The Cameroonian international admitted that while he is content where he is, “at a certain level, you never know how it will go” (h/t FCInterNews, Sky Sport Italia).

“I don’t have any issues with Inter. I am at their disposal and in excellent standing with them; I will follow their instructions.

Chelsea and Manchester United are both interested in Onana ahead of the forthcoming transfer window in England, which officially opens on Wednesday.

As they try to find a way out of their current financial rut, Inter are holding out for a fee of at least £50 million.

Romelu Lukaku, who is on loan at Inter, might be included in any potential trade for Onana, which would allow Chelsea to reduce the price.

Although Mauricio Pochettino, the new manager of Chelsea, is apparently willing to work with him next season, Lukaku has no desire to go back to Stamford Bridge. Therefore, when negotiations are resumed for Onana, a loan extension will be covered.

Giorgi Mamardashvili of Valencia and David Raya of Brentford have been identified as fallback targets for Chelsea if their pursuit of Onana is unsuccessful, however the latter is close to reaching a personal contract agreement with Tottenham Hotspur.
