Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana was convinced on a move to Inter next summer because he felt that the club has shown trust in him.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Cameroonian was impressed with the Nerazzurri’s perseverance in trying to win his signature.
Inter have had Onana identified as the long-term successor to Samir Handanovic for some time, and have been in advanced talks with the player with an agreement in place for several months.
Yesterday the 25-year-old was in Milan to complete his medicals with the Nerazzurri and also spoke to the club directors about his impending move.
The Nerazzurri were far from the only team courting Onana’s signature on a free transfer, with Premier League clubs, especially Arsenal interested, and Barcelona also candidates.
However, it has been Inter who have been following the keeper closest for the longest, and this has made him decide to sign with the club when his deal with Ajax runs out.
