Before the summer transfer window opened for business a couple of weeks ago, there were reports that Arsenal were strongly interested in the idea of singing Cameroon international goalkeeper Andre Onana from Dutch Eredivisie League giants Ajax.
The goalkeeper was attracting serious interest from the Gunners and it was looking like the north London club would be making an official bid for him and he would be heading for England but unfortubately, he was slapped with a lengthy ban from all football activities after he was reportedly caught breaking doping regulations. Since then, he is yet to make a y appearance for his club and they have continued to look for a club for him.
Although he is banned from engaging in any professional training with any club, he can still undergo some private training sessions either at his residential home or anywhere else as long as it is a private place. The incident dealt a major blow to Arsenal’s transfer plans as well as the player’s future as the Gunners opted to sign an alternative option instead. The north London club eventually signed English goakpeeper Aaron Ramsdale from Sheffield United for a fee of £30 million and it means that they would no longer be looking to sign Onana anymore as they still have Bernd Leno in their books.
Inter Milan could now jump ahead of the queue to sign the goalkeeper as they are going to try and sign a replacement for their current number one shot-stopper, Slovenia international goalkeeper Samir Handanovic. The long-serving goalkeeper is currently 37 and a replacement for him is needed, meaning that Inter Milan could be getting Onana next summer as Arsenal are no longer in the race after Ajax Director Marc Overmars revealed that they could let him leave for free.
