Fabrizio Romano has revealed that rumoured Tottenham target Andre Onana has a verbal agreement to join Inter Milan at the end of the season.

With Hugo Lloris now into the final year of his contract at Tottenham, it has been reported that the club are on the lookout for the Frenchman’s successor. 

90 min reported two weeks ago that Tottenham could move for Onana, whose contract at Ajax runs out at the end of the season.

The report suggested that Antonio Conte has been an admirer of the Cameroon international for a long time and has informed Fabio Paratici of his desire to have him in North London.

It was also asserted that the 25-year-old had decided not to extend his stay at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

He explained that although Onana has not signed a pre-contract agreement with the Nerrazuri, he has verbally agreed to join the club as a free agent at the end of the season.

Romano later reported that Onana had confirmed his impending exit from Ajax:
