Tottenham: Andre Onana links emerge

Tottenham: Andre Onana links emerge -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham have joined Newcastle United in the race to sign Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana, according to 90min.

The Lowdown: Lloris’ contract situation

Spurs’ current number one Hugo Lloris is out of contract in just over six months’ time. The Frenchman revealed in August that Tottenham have made no attempts to extend his deal, and should his situation remain the same over the coming months, he will be able to speak with clubs outside of England ahead of a potential pre-contract agreement.

Pierluigi Gollini arrived on loan prior to Antonio Conte taking over, but it seems as if the manager has another ‘keeper on his wish list.

The Latest: Onana links

90min shared a report on Wednesday, claiming that Spurs boss Conte is keen to bring Onana to north London.

The 52-year-old has told managing director of football Fabio Paratici that he wants a new shot-stopper, with the Ajax man a ‘keeper who he admires.

The Cameroon international would fit Conte’s style of play as he is capable of playing out from the back, with Spurs possibly rivalling Newcastle and Inter Milan for his services.

The Verdict: Wise move?

Fabrizio Romano claimed earlier this year that Arsenal viewed Onana as a ‘perfect’ goalkeeper, so bringing him to Spurs could be a shrewd piece of business in the long run.

He is on just £33,000 per week with his current employers, so you’d expect Tottenham wouldn’t need to make him one of their top earners. Spurs also need to think long-term with Lloris turning 35 next month, and Onana appears to be a ready-made replacement.

He has lined out 204 times for Ajax, with more than 50 of those coming in European competition. Onana also has international experience and is out of contract in the summer, so a cut-price swoop in January could make sense with a view to replacing Lloris next season.
