New Chelsea signing Hakim Ziyech wants his future employers to sign Ajax team-mate Andre Onana, but the Cameroonian goalkeeper is also interested in a move to Tottenham Hotspur, according to the Daily Mail.
The Blues confirmed a deal to bring the exciting winger to Stamford Bridge earlier this year, with the 26-year-old to move to the Premier League side in the summer.
The report suggests that Ziyech will urge Chelsea to sign Onana also and that the goalkeeper is open to a move to the Blues or Tottenham.
Frank Lampard’s men have had issues in goal this term, with Kepa Arrizabalaga dropped to the bench in favour of Willy Caballero, who has not overly impressed the Blues faithful.
Tottenham may also be in the market for a new stopper, as club captain Hugo Lloris has spent time away from the game due to injury and at times has looked past his best.
Onana is a player that both Chelsea and Spurs will know well, as the English clubs have both faced Ajax in the Champions League over the last 12 months.
The 23-year-old Cameroon international has been an important part of the Amsterdam outfit’s first team recently and will surely be attracting suitors this summer.
It will be interesting to see if Chelsea or Tottenham look to add a new goalkeeper in the summer and whether Onana is in the frame for a move to either of the London clubs.
Tottenham or Chelsea?
Should the option arrive for Onana to join either of the London sides, he will surely jump at the opportunity given the increase in stature of the club and probable boost in wages.
Chelsea look to have lost faith in Arrizabalaga, with Caballero certainly not the option for Lampard’s men in the long term.
While Lloris has made some important saves for Tottenham this season and can be world class on his day, the increasing number of personal mistakes has led to the impression that the veteran Frenchman is part of the problem, not the solution, at Spurs.
