Mikel Arteta faces a battle if he wants to land one of Arsenal’s reported long-term targets.

The Sun note via a tweet from Italian journalist Nicolo Schira that Ajax goalkeeper, Andre Onana, has rejected the Dutch side’s offer of a new contract, and as such he will leave the club next summer at the latest.

Calciomercato note that Inter are looking seriously at Onana’s situation as they prepare for life after Samir Handanovic.

The custodian would be available for a fee in January, or for free next summer, so if the Gunners want to be considered as a potential destination, they’ve a few months to convince the player.

Aside from his ban from the sport after mistakenly taking his wife’s (banned) medication, Onana’s star has been consistently on the rise ever since he came to prominence in Barcelona’s youth teams.

Having been out of the game for some nine months and then being forced to train with the Ajax youth team according to The Sun, it’s clear the keeper will be champing at the bit to prove he can still do a job at the highest level.

Whether Arsenal will get the chance of acquiring Onana given Inter’s strong interest remains to be seen.

  1. All fans should put hands on deck to force the club to sign Onana, Conte, a stong defensive midfielder like Bissouma or Zacharia and a striker. Then Arsenal will be set for at least top 6 and in 2 years top 4.
    Arteta lacks the experience and personality to accomplish those tasks in the club. He is still a novice and in addition with no leadership skills.
    A manager cannot fall out with almost every play. These players are no longer psychologically prepared to work under Arteta.
