According to Daily Mail, Premier League rivals Manchester United have joined Chelsea in the race to sign Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana.

The Cameroon international was an important player at the San Siro last season, playing 41 games across all competitions as Inter finished third in Serie A, won the Coppa Italia and reached the Champions League final.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is keen on signing a goalkeeper this summer to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy while Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag wants to sign Onana as a a ‘challenger to David de Gea.’ 

Meanwhile Champions League finalist Inter Milan are interested in signing 23 year old Chelsea centre-back Trevoh Chalobah, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Inter Milan are set to meet Chelsea in the coming days to discuss a potential move for the Chelsea academy graduate.

Inter Milan will also discuss about signing Chelsea duo Romelu Lukaku and Kalidou Koulibaly during the meeting with Chelsea while the Blues will ask about signing Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Romano said: “Chelsea and Inter are set to schedule a meeting in the next days, as called yesterday.

“Understand Inter will ask about Kalidou Koulibaly as priority target.

“Romelu Lukaku’s future, main topic; but Trevoh Chalobah for Inter, André Onana for Chelsea will be also discussed.”

    Respectfully, what’s the problem at Chelsea such that we are finding it so difficult to sign players targeted. We have been kept in the dark for far too long. Even selling is also a problem.
