According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Andre Onana from Ajax as a replacement for Hugo Lloris.

It has been reported that Tottenham would have to spend £30 million to £35m in transfer fees in order to secure the services of the 23-year-old Cameroon international goalkeeper.

The report has also claimed that Spurs would first have to sell first-choice goalkeeper Lloris before landing Onana, as the youngster would not want to be on the substitutes’ bench.

 

Interestingly, Onana was linked with a move to Tottenham back earlier this year, with De Telegraaf reporting in February 2019 that the North London club wanted to sign hm in the summer of 2019 (click here to read more).

Good signing for Tottenham Hotspur?

Onana has been at Ajax since 2015 and has established himself as one of the best young goalkeepers in Europe.

Although the Cameroon international does make mistakes, he is usually an assured pair of hands between the posts and is also very commanding in the box.

Lloris is a hugely experienced goalkeeper, but the 32-year-old has made some high-profile mistakes in recent times.

It is time Tottenham start looking for a replacement for the France international goalkeeper who is injured at the moment.
