Inter-linked goalkeeper Andre Onana will be able to return to training soon, and will begin doing so with Ajax’s youth team.

This is confirmed by Ajax Sporting Director Marc Overmars, who stated on the club’s official site that the 25-year-old will be training with the youth reserves of the Dutch champions rather than with the senior squad, and that his future is uncertain.

Inter are tracking the Onana, who is seen as a possible long-term successor to Samir Handanovic in goal, and he could join the Nerazzurri on a free transfer next summer with his current deal with Ajax set to expire at the end of June 2022.

The Cameroonian keeper is currently serving a one-year ban for a doping violation, but he will be able to make his return to the pitch on November 4, and can return to training two months prior to the end of the suspension on September 4.

Overmars explained that the 25-year-old will not necessarily return straight into training with the first team, but will rather begin with the youth team for the Amsterdam club.

“We have decided that Andre will start goalkeeper training and team training sessions with Jong Ajax,” He said. “The question, for now, is whether he will earn a spot with the first team in the long term.”

The Director went on, “We have now moved on without him and have recruited two keepers during his suspension. Both an experienced and a talented one, the latter being one with an eye on the future. The team has already started the season and is in the process of teambuilding.”
