Could Everton lose Amadou Onana?

    Amadou Onana could leave Everton at the end of the season, according to journalist Ben Jacobs. Caught Outside.

    A well-known and respected journalist suggested that if Everton could get £60 million for Onan at the end of the season, then the Premier League club could sell him.

    Jacobs said: “Amadou Onana is a name to keep an eye on this summer despite only being at Everton since last summer.”

    The journalist added: Chelsea and Arsenal considered Onana in January, but it was clear he didn’t want to move midway through the season. As with Jordan Pickford, the Toffees will have a hard time keeping Onan if they lose.

    Everton also really need more spending due to their financial situation, even with the £45m sale of Anthony Gordon to Newcastle. Farhad Moshiri continues to seek investment, with the US firm 777 Partners becoming interested in the latter.

    “However, this is difficult, as the suitors can now approach the players and offer something stable. Everton, on the other hand, should wait and see which league they are in first. Investors and players alike are unlikely to make any commitments until they know if Everton have cemented their status in the Premier League. Even with Pickford, who recently signed a new contract, there is an understanding (if not the actual position) that he could leave if Everton are relegated.

    “Toffees paid Lille Onan £33m last summer and given his form they could get £60m for him if sold. As far as I know, Arsenal and Chelsea have different priorities. Both want Declan Rice from West Ham and now Arsenal are in the lead.

    “But more broadly, both clubs want a defensive midfielder, as does Newcastle. Atlético Madrid is also worth seeing. Onana’s Belgian teammate Axel Witsel has lauded Onana, but given his dream of playing in the Premier League, it might be difficult for a non-English-speaking fiancé to pick him up after an impressive first season at Goodison Park.
