Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has given an update on the Nerazzurri’s reported pursuit of Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN prior to this evening’s Serie A clash with Atalanta, the executive spoke about the Cameroonian keeper, as well as responding to rumours that Inter owners Suning are looking to divest from the club.

Inter are looking for a long-term successor to captain Samir Handanovic, who turned 37 this summer, and with Onana out of contract with the Dutch champions at the end of June 2022 he could be a high quality option available as a free transfer next summer.

Marotta confirmed that the 25-year-old is a player who Inter are interested in, but made clear that there are no concrete developments towards his signing.

“We know that the Sporting Director  Ausilio is active with his colleagues in monitoring the possibilities that the market offers,” Marotta said. “Beyond that there is nothing to report, it is the routine of the sports management. Interesting goalkeeper, but we have a great goalkeeper, we hold onto him.”

Marotta also spoke on the rumours that Suning are looking for investors to sell their shares in the Nerazzurri to, and emphasized that the Chinese company are still in control at the club and should be given respect for their continued contributions.

“There has been a lot of talk in the media,” he said. “[InterSpac President] Cottarelli made many statements. The positive aspect is the love and passion for these colours, Inter will never be alone. There is also a company that has lavished hundreds of millions of euros, but which has reduced investments.”

He went on, “Today Inter are calm, we go forward with serenity. Maybe we cannot make important investments, but it is an issue that affects all the clubs and not just Inter, we need to find new model of sustainability. The Zhang family loves to give the team and us peace of mind, and they want to keep winning. We owe them respect.”
