‘I tried my possible best to lure Him to Man city but He still choose Arsenal over us’: Man city Star Kelvin De Bruyne confirmed His £70m international teammate is set to join Arsenal this week after reaching verbal agreement with them

Amadou Onana, a midfielder for Everton, is anticipated to cost Arsenal at least £60 million when he is acquired in January.

The 22-year-old, who reportedly paid £33 million to move from Lille to Goodison Park in June 2022, has since established himself as a vital first-team player for manager Sean Dyche’s Toffees.

Box-to-box midfielder Onana has made 56 appearances for Everton in all competitions, scoring three goals and dishing out three assists. This season, he has made 21 appearances.

The Belgian international’s Everton contract is set to expire in June 2027, but he has been linked to a high-profile transfer to a European team.

Onana’s future is reportedly being closely monitored by Manchester United in light of rumours that Everton may have to offload some of its best players in order to balance their books and stay out of trouble with the FFP.

Onana, meantime, is reportedly drawing serious interest from Arsenal, who reportedly spoke with Everton about a potential January transfer for the midfield player.

The Toffees have set a £60 million asking price for Onana and are not planning to trade him this month, according to Football Insider.

Onana is considered a key member of Dyche’s first team, since the team is now fighting for its life in the Premier League after losing 10 points in November.

Romelu Lukaku’s £75 million move from Everton to Manchester United in 2017 remains the club’s all-time record selling.

After shelling out more than £200 million for Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, and Jurrien Timber last summer, it remains to be seen if Arsenal will make a sizable payment this month.

Amid uncertainty surrounding the long-term futures of Thomas Partey, Emile Smith Rowe, Jorginho, Mohamed Elneny, who is out of contract in June, the Gunners are believed to have identified Onana as a potential midfield target.
