Chelsea close in on world class signing after target says his goodbyes?
Victor Onana has seemingly dropped a goodbye message to Ajax fans, amid talk that Chelsea are keen on a transfer deal.
There has been a lot of speculation in the media over the past few months which has suggested that Frank Lampard is keen to offload Spanish stopper Kepa in the summer after becoming frustrated at the young mans performances on a weekly basis.
And that has led to speculation in the media suggesting that Lampard is keen to add a new stopper to the side, with Ajax ace Onana on the shopping list of the boss after establishing himself as one of the best stoppers in Europe.
Onana helped Ajax reach the Champions League semi-finals last season and also helped the Dutch side regain their title after a few years of trying, and his performances caught the attentions of, Real Madrid and Manchester United over the last couple of transfer windows, but it seemed that he had no desire to leave.
However, recent reports in the SUN claimed that we are looking to try and convince the Ajax stopper to leave in the summer and come to the Premier League, with reports suggesting that we believe a fee of around 325 million could be enough to convince Ajax to sell on.
Now, with rumours swirling about his future at Ajax, Onana stoked the flames by posting a goodbye message on his Instagram.
He said: ‘This journey ends with an empty stadium, but full of pride and satisfaction. Thanks for all the love and support.’
Look, we have said on many occasions that kepa is a young stopper that does have all the qualities to turn into a world class stopper over the next few seasons if given the chance to improve under Lampard.
But we would be very excited to see Onana sign up!
