Andre Onana only signed for Inter Milan last summer on a free transfer from Ajax. However, there are murmurs that his time in Italy may be over already.

The 27-year-old has previously been named on a shortlist of goalkeepers who may replace Hugo Lloris at Tottenham Hotspur this summer (90Min).

Onana has also been earmarked as a potential signing for Mauricio Pocchettino at Chelsea (Football Insider).

The two London clubs look set to battle it out for his signature this summer, but the latest report from SempreInter suggests they will also have Manchester United to contend with in that fight.

Apparently the Blues “still lead the race” for Onana. But, Inter have made it clear they will only accept “cash offers” for their man between the sticks, and are not interested in any player exchange deals.

Tottenham are thought to have “enquired” about Onana after being impressed by his heroics in Europe.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are interested, but are yet to turn that into any kind of “concrete action”.

It is expected Inter would be “open to selling” the player, as they look to bring in cash to solve their financial issues.

Spurs Web Opinion

Andre Onana is a fantastic goalkeeper and a player we would be very lucky to have. However, it won’t be easy to persuade him to leave Inter for North London, especially given the fact we don’t have European football to offer him.
