Inter Get Their Next Goalie as Onana Lands to Secure Move

Inter are on the brink of completing their lengthy chase of André Onana. The Ajax goalkeeper has arrived in Milan earlier today to take the medicals. He will then put pen-to-paper on a five-year contract to join on a Bosman transfer next summer, Tuttomercatoweb reports. However, the official announcement might not come until February.

According to L’Equipe, the 25-year-old received the go-ahead from Ajax. After the tests and the signature, he will fly back to Yaoundé to resume preparing for the African Cup of Nations. He will finish the season in the Netherlands, most likely as a reserve. He has played just two matches since clearing his doping-related suspension.

Inter have been pursuing Onana for a long time. They quickly pounced on the opportunity to get their goalkeeper of the future on a free transfer. Despite some recent remarks about Barcelona, their pursuit has never seemed particularly in jeopardy.

The Nerazzurri have yet to determine whether they will move on from Samir Handanovic altogether. They offered their captain to re-up his expiring contract at a reduced salary to stay as a backup. His decision will hinge on whether he could still find a starting job elsewhere. The Slovenian veteran has been at the club since 2012 and got back on track in December after a bumpy start.

Onana will move to Inter after seven years at Ajax, which he joined from the Barcelona youth academy. He accumulated 206 appearances, where he has conceded 181 goals and kept 84 clean sheets. He contributed to two domestic titles. The shot-stopper has 20 caps with Cameroon.
