Arsenal fans react as Andre Onana is again linked with transfer
Arsenal are reportedly close to signing Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana.
According to NOS, the 25-year-old shot-stopper will leave the Eredivisie champions this summer. Onana has not played football since February after being banned from the sport from UEFA for 12-months.
The report states that a transfer is close, and that Onana will be seen as a replacement for Bernd Leno. According to the Guardian, the Germany international could leave Arsenal this summer, along with other first-team players.
As reported by Goal, Onana is available this summer for just £7m. However, he will not return to football until February next year. As per NOS, it is unlikely the Cameroonian’s ban will be overturned this week.
Despite this, Arsenal supporters on social media are keen on Onana joining the club this summer. Leno has unimpressed this season for the Gunners.
Here’s what some fans had to say on Twitter about the news…

Leno doesn’t have any sort of distribution game.— averageopinion (@averageopinion2) June 1, 2021
Onana is very good on one side at least. He can improve the other side over time. He’s very young for a goalkeeper 25 years old https://t.co/TLqKcJl3CE
Onana is a level above Leno.— Collins (@qukety) June 1, 2021
Leno's distribution is an eye sore
Let's do this. I'm all for Onana. He's done so much for Ajax in their decent run!— KROENKE OUT! OIL CLUBS ruined football 🇵🇸 (@kylianhaaland) June 1, 2021
If we can sign him below 7 million. Then it's is going to be the deal of the season.— Afc_Toast (@Afc_Toast) June 1, 2021
Onana was part of the Ajax side that made the UEFA Champions League semi-finals in 2018/19.
