Tottenham: Spurs remain interested in Andre Onana - Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in signing Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana this summer, according to recent reports.

The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing a new goalkeeper

With Hugo Lloris now 36 and laid low with injury, Spurs manager Antonio Conte has identified the need for a new goalkeeper. Several potential options have emerged, including the likes of Jordan Pickford, David Raya and Jan Oblak.

However, a new development at Inter Milan could open the door for the 53-year-old to go back in for someone in whom he has been interested for a long time, with 90min reporting back in November 2021 that the Italian had shortlisted Onana upon taking the job in N17.

The Latest: Onana available?

According to 90min, Inter are ready to sell the Cameroonian in the summer in order to raise funds, having struggled to balance the books since the global pandemic of 2020.

The Serie A giants are aiming to raise around £50m by July and they could look to cash-in on their goalkeeper, with Tottenham being alerted to his availability.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Hailed as a ‘superstar‘ by UEFA-accredited journalist Oma Akatugba, the 26-year-old has been in fine form of late, keeping clean sheets in four out of his last six games, including one in the Milan derby last time out.

There are also plenty of indications that he would be an upgrade on Lloris, recording a better save percentage (75.6% to 72.5%) and far more touches of the ball per 90 (40.95 to 30.59) than the Frenchman over the past year, with the latter metric indicating that he is more comfortable in playing the ball out from the back.

As previously mentioned, Spurs have a range of different targets to replace their current first-choice goalkeeper, but Onana’s impending availablity is very good news indeed as he is proven at the top level, making 32 appearances in the Champions League.
