Arsenal contact Everton over move for Amadou Onana

Arsenal contacted Everton on the opening day of the summer transfer window over the availability of midfielder Amadou Onana, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Gunners have had the 22-year-old Belgian on their radar for a while and are keen to know what it will take to recruit his services.

Everton want at least £50 million to sell Onana and are yet to get back to Arsenal following the initial contact on Friday.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admires the Belgium international and is a huge fan of his style of play and qualities.

Onana impressed in the 1-0 Premier League win over the Gunners at Goodison Park in February 2023.

He was a major topic of conversation in the Arsenal dressing room after the final whistle.

They could be without Thomas Partey next season and are already scouring the market for a quality replacement.

However, Arsenal are not the only club keeping tabs on Onana. Newcastle United, Manchester United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich also monitoring the situation.

The Toffees received two points deductions last season for not complying with the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability rules.

They must sell one of their big-money players as soon as possible to avoid another punishment.

Arsenal need to sell Partey and some other fringe players to raise funds to sign Onana and other summer targets given their own need to balance the books.
