Report: Arsenal target agrees four-year deal elsewhere

Arsenal look to have missed out on signing Andre Onana, with Calciomercato reporting that he has now agreed a four-year deal elsewhere.

What’s the story?

Onana was heavily linked with the Gunners over the summer. Of course, his situation was complicated by a doping ban that he is still serving.

However, at one stage, it was claimed that a move to the Emirates was imminent. Obviously, that ended up not happening.

Arsenal did sign Aaron Ramsdale. But it appeared that that was not the end of the story with Onana.

Leno has lost his place to Ramsdale. And more recently, the Daily Mail reported that Inter Milan want the Germany international.

However, a move for Onana now looks to be out of the question.

Calciomercato is now reporting that the Cameroon international has agreed a four-year deal with Inter from next summer. He is set to earn around £49,000-a-week at San Siro.

Onana move to Inter may be tough for Leno to take after losing Arsenal spot

Leno’s hopes of leaving Arsenal would certainly be boosted if Mikel Arteta had a replacement lined up.

But obviously, the 29-year-old would also need a club to join. So Onana agreeing a deal with Inter closes off that path.

Another side may make a move for Leno. And there is obviously a chance that he could yet regain his spot in the Gunners’ side.

But hearing that Onana is Milan-bound will surely compound the current frustration that the Arsenal man will be feeling.
