Star Goalkeeper "Tired" Of Being Linked With The Gunners After Missing Out On Premier League Move

Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana has revealed that he is growing "tired" of being linked with Arsenal and other Premier League sides.

The Cameroon international has been a standout player in the Eredivisie for the past few seasons, most notably of all in 2019 when he played a vital role in helping Ajax reach the Semi-final of the Champions League.

Unsurprisingly, this led to Onana being linked with some of Europe's biggest clubs, including Arsenal, Chelsea and Inter Milan.

No such move materialised after the 25-year-old tested positive for a banned substance back in February, one that led to a nine-month ban from football.

He made his return to first-team action earlier this week against Besiktas in the Champions League, which has already reignited talk about his immediate future at Ajax.

Onana's current contract expires next summer, which will undoubtedly alert the attention of several clubs around the continent; but for the time being, the keeper doesn't want to discuss transfers that may or may materialise.

Italian paper Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness) is the latest outlet to link him with a Premier League move, claiming that Arsenal are still in the mix to sign the Ajax academy graduate.

"I've wanted to talk about that for some time: I was in Salou [for individual training]," Onana told Ziggo Sport.

"There was an article about me every day. Then it was Arsenal, then it was Lyon, pfff... I was tired of it, the media thinks it should inform me about my own life, come on."

"Do I have an agreement with another club? I still have a contract with Ajax. It's rubbish."

A move to Arsenal next summer would be strange to say the least, as the Gunners have only just signed Aaron Ramsdale for £30 million.

Joining from Sheffield United, the newly-capped England international has massively impressed between the sticks for Arteta's side - and deputy Bernd Leno isn't exactly sharp a downgrade either.

While Arsenal may not be in contention, you can bet that there will be plenty of other suitors if the talented stopper does want a fresh new challenge.
