‘Special talent’: Sky Sports pundit thinks there are no ‘limits’ to what 21-year-old can achieve at Everton
The pundit heaped praise on Onana and labelled him a ‘special talent’.
The 21-year-old made the switch to Goodison Park from Lille this summer and has already become one of the first names on the team sheet.
And Redknapp feels the Belgian midfielder will become a huge star for Frank Lampard’s side.
No ‘limits’ to what Onana can achieve
“Onana in midfield has the potential to be, I don’t think there’s any limits to what he can achieve,” Redknapp said on Sky Sports today.
“Such a special talent, real pace in midfield. Can drive with the ball, great understanding of the game and Frank has been delighted.
“He’s a really good signing.”
Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink certainly agreed with Redknapp too.
“He’s got everything, that’s what Jamie has just said,” Hasselbaink said.
“He’s got athleticism to get into the box, create things but also do the other side of the game.
“And they missed that a little bit in the middle of the park.”
Onana has made a big impact in Lampard’s midfield so far and at just 21, he’s got plenty of time to improve even further.
The Toffees got their first win of the Premier League season today after beating West Ham 1-0 at Goodison Park.
Onana once again put in an impressive display from central midfield and Lampard will be delighted by his performances.
Everton are now unbeaten in their last five Premier League games and Lampard’s men are looking like a tough side to beat.
