As the winter transfer window comes closer and closer Arsenal are being linked with more and more potential transfers.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Arsenal are eyeing move for Everton midfielder Amadou Onana.
The 21-year-old has been subject to interest from various Premier League clubs.
The Belgium international joined Everton from Lille for a fee in the region of 35 million euros in August 2022. He is under contract until the summer of 2027.
Since his arrival from Lille, Onana has scored one goal and provided one assist in 20 games for Everton.
The 21-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Belgium. Onana has earned four senior caps for the Belgium national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Mikel Arteta wants to sign a new midfielder and Onana is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The report claims that Arsenal manager has extensively scouted Onana and is considering a move for the midfielder.
The Gunners are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.
There is no doubt that Amadou Onana will take Arsenal’s midfield to a different level.
According to the report, “Arsenal are set to take revenge on Chelsea for signing Mykhaylo Mudryk this winter. The Gunners are in the race to sign Everton midfielder Amadou Onana along with the Blues. According to reporter Sacha Tavolieri, Arsenal are keen to secure Onana this month given the problems at Everton at present. They believe the club needs cash urgently and will be willing to sell Onana for a modest fee. Chelsea also want to sign Onana, but Arsenal are ready to steal a march on the Blues and secure his signature. Onana is also interesting Newcastle United, where he may be likely to play more often.”
Euro Football Rumours
Amadou Onana is a top-class talent and Everton want to keep him at the club. They feel under no pressure to sell and will “demand a significant fee” before letting him go.
Arsenal will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Everton to the negotiating table. The Gunners have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.
Good signing for Arsenal?
Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Arsenal.
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
If he turns out to be a star like many expect, it could be one of the club’s smartest transfers.
How strong that interest is and whether Arsenal will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
