Arsenal want Andrey Onana from Barcelona

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have opened negotiations with Barcelona starlet Andrey Onana - and they want to bring the 18-year-old keeper to the Emirates Stadium this summer.

According to Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal are set to complete a second raid on La Masia, having already snapped up Germany youth team star Georgios Spanoudakis earlier this summer.

Onana, 18, has impressed in goal for the Barcelona youth teams and Arsene Wenger wants to bring him across to north London. He will follow a well trodden path if he does- Fran Merida and Cesc Fabregas both made similar moves.

Arsenal's Iberian scout Francis Cagigao has recommended Onana to Wenger, and the Arsenal boss is set to act on the advice.

Arsenal are reshuffling the goalkeepers in their squad this summer. Wojciech Szczesny remains number one but Wenger is about to complete the signing of David Ospina from Nice for £3m to replace the departed Lukasz Fabianski. The Polish international has joined Swansea.

Places up for grabs

Damien Martinez is currently third choice, but Wenger wants a conveyor belt of talent coming through, and he believes Onana, a Cameroonian youngster, could be the ideal fit.

The Metro even reports that Onana would be expected to beat out Martinez for the position of third choice at the Emirates should he complete a move from Barca before the close of the summer window.
