Breaking: Following extensive negotiations, Arsenal’s first January signing has just arrived in London to complete a “sensational move” this week. In London, he was observed signing autographs for admirers. In the upcoming days, he can’t wait to meet and train with his new teammates. The Arsenal title fight has only just begun.
As the rumor mill picks up steam, we brought you the news last week that initially mentioned Arsenal’s approach for Amadou Onana. Now, additional sources are supporting that information.
According to today’s report by Sacha Tavloieri, Arsenal and Everton have started holding intensive talks about Onana’s signing, and things could happen soon. The players agent’s sighting in London only served to fuel the rumors.
Despite being just 22 years old, Onana has already shown excellent technical ability, making him a viable option to take Thomas Partey’s place in Arsenal’s midfield. The Gunners were impressed by his skills when he was at Lille and continued to be so when he moved to Everton, with Arsenal even considering a bid in January of last year.
