Man Utd, Chelsea and Tottenham in transfer battle for Inter Milan Champions League hero | The Sun

TOTTENHAM have joined Chelsea and Manchester United in a three way battle for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana, according to reports in Italy.

Sempre Inter report that Chelsea have held a concrete interest in the Cameroon star, 27, for months but face a stumbling block in the form of Inter's demands.

Inter favour a straight cash deal whereas Chelsea were hoping to include Kepa Arrizabalaga or Edouard Mendy in a transfer that would allow them to trim their bloated squad.

Erik ten Hag is also an admirer of the keeper having previously managed him at Ajax but United have yet to turn this into concrete interest.

Which has left the door open for Spurs, who are hoping to upgrade on their ageing captain Hugo Lloris this summer.

The former French skipper struggled for form this season, making several high-profile errors before suffering a season ending injury in April.

The Lilywhites have now enquired about the availability of Onana.

The Inter man presents an attractive proposition for clubs having starred in an Inter team that has won the Supercoppa Italiana, the Coppa Italia and reached the Champions League final.

Onana has kept 19 clean sheets in his 40 appearances for Inter this season and is comfortable with the ball at his feet.

While he only signed for Inter Milan on a free transfer from Ajax last season, the Nerazzurri are prepared to cash in on the star in order to comply with Italy's financial fair play rulings.

Onana was also linked with a return to Barcelona, having come through their academy before joining Ajax as a youngster.

Barca have cooled their interest, however, amid a number of Premier League clubs preparing to spend big on the star.

Sempre Inter report that Inter hope the number of interested clubs will see a bidding war ensue.
