21 year old midfielder Everton midfielder Amadou Onana has turned down the chance to join Chelsea, according to Foot Mercato and L’Equipe.

Chelsea reportedly made an offer to Belgian international Onana, who recently competed in the Qatar World Cup, but the midfielder declined the chance to join Chelsea.

Onana instead prefers to remain at Everton for the rest of the season, according to Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri.

Having only signed for £33.5million from Lille in early August, Onana doesn’t fancy another change so quickly after settling on Merseyside.

Onana has scored one goal in 18 appearances for Everton in the Premier League and has picked up five yellow cards for his troubles.
