Arsenal join Inter Milan in Andre Onana transfer race but Italian club are not interested in Bernd Leno transfer
The pursuit by ARSENAL of main goalkeeper Andre Onana is threatened by Inter Milan.
The Serie A kings have reportedly ruled out bidding for the Gunners’ ax stopper Bernd Leno.
And transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims Ajax star Onana is “really close” to joining Inter in a free transfer next summer.
Cameroonian number one Onana is expected to reject a new deal with the Dutch champions and has been linked with Arsenal on a regular basis.
But now Inter appear to be the favorites to sign the 25-year-old.

Leno was thought to be on Inter’s radar, but it is claimed that the German is now completely off their list of alternatives.
The 29-year-old has been replaced by Aaron Ramsdale, a £ 30million summer buy during Arsenal’s spectacular Premier League relaunch.

The former Sheffield United No.1 started with three clean sheets and retained his place in Sunday’s impressive 3-1 loss to Tottenham.
But at 23, Ramsdale is still seen as a growing player for the future.
And Onana seems to do the trick for both Arsenal and Inter.
He is in disgrace with Ajax after returning from a nine-month suspension for doping violation.
Onana was found to have banned the substance furosemide in her urine during an “out of competition” test last October.
Gunners legend and Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars said they “continued without him”.
This left Onana training with the youth team to get back into shape.
