Inter Milan have reportedly increased their asking price for goalkeeper Andre Onana from €40 to €60 Millions, following claims Chelsea will bid for the Cameroon ace this summer.
Onana has been one of Inter’s top performers last season, helping them to the Coppa Italia final and the Champions League semi-final.
The Cameroonian goalkeeper Andre Onana kept a clean sheet that helped Inter Milan reach another Italian Cup final following a 2-1 aggregate win against eternal rival Juventus of Turin.
His contract at the Milan runs until June 2025, putting Inter in a strong position.
Chelsea are set to end the season without a trophy to their name for the second year in a row. Their goalkeeping department is shrouded in uncertainty due to the poor performances of the options in hand.
Last week Gazetta Dello Sport is reportedly open to negotiate and sell their Cameroonian custodian at €40 Millions though he still has five years in his current contract at the San Siro. However the latest development have it that there’s an additional €20 Millions.
Sources say Chelsea have scheduled a meeting with Inter officials in the close season with the aim of convincing the Italians to let Onana go even if it means putting Kepa Arrizabalaga or Edouard Mendy in the deal.
Onana is a proven keeper with the capacity to quickly fix Chelsea’s defensive problems within no time thus explaining West Londoners keen interest and Inter’s hefty price-tag.
Inter will face neighbors AC Milan in the Champions League semi-final early next month while the Coppa Italia final will be played on May 24 and could be an opportunity for Onana to win his first trophy as an Inter Milan player.
