Could Tottenham’s Strakosha stance change following Onana renewal?

Tottenham Hotspur target Andre Onana put pen to paper on a new deal with Ajax on Thursday.

The Cameroonian stopper has committed his future to the Amsterdam giants and could now remain with the club until 2022.

It is a great coup for Ajax, with Onana something of an unsung hero of their young side.

The likes of Frenkie de Jong, Matthijs de Ligt, Dusan Tadic and Hakim Ziyech often grab the headlines but the goalkeeper is a very important and underrated part of the team.

With Onana set to stick around, it could mean that Tottenham will now have to look elsewhere if they want a new goalkeeper this summer.

De Telegraaf reported last month that Spurs were eyeing up Onana for around £30 million.


TBR’s view

Onana has been having a brilliant season between the sticks for Ajax, and the extension is excellent news for Ajax.

It essentially stops Tottenham from negotiating a cheaper deal, meaning they might have to look elsewhere.

The club have also recently been linked with a move for Thomas Strakosha.

The Lazio number one would apparently cost Tottenham in the region €40 million (£34 million) according to Il Messaggero.

The Italian publication claimed Spurs were unwilling to pay that figure, but given the news of Onana’s renewal, it will be interesting to see if the north Londoners’ stance will now change.

Strakosha would not be a bad alternative to Onana – the Albanian has established himself as one of Serie A’s better goalkeeper’s since debuting in the 2016/17 season.
