Inter Milan have made it very clear to Chelsea – they will not accept any offers of less than €60 million for goalkeeper Andre Onana.
This according to SportItalia transfer market expert Alfredo Pedulla, who reported in a tweet that the Nerazzurri will give Chelsea their ultimatum in an upcoming meeting.
Inter and Chelsea will meet very soon.
The main topic of the meeting will be to discuss the future of Romelu Lukaku. The Nerazzurri will have to negotiate a new loan deal if they are to keep the Belgian next season.
According to Pedulla, Inter are absolutely determined to loan Lukaku back. They will attempt to negotiate exactly this when they meet with his club soon.
However, that’s not all that will be up for discussion.
Pedulla reports that Inter will ask about Blues defender Trevoh Chalobah. And, Chelsea will push to sign goalkeeper Andre Onana, who is a major target to become their first-choice goalkeeper next season.
Inter Milan Won’t Accept Chelsea Offer For Andre Onana Less Than €60M
Onana won’t come cheap, Pedulla reports.
The SportItalia transfer expert anticipates that Inter would turn down any offer of less than €60 million for the Cameroonian.
However, if Chelsea were to make an offer that goes above that, it would certainly test the Nerazzurri’s resolve.
In any event, the two clubs will meet soon and should clear the air regarding whether or not Onana could move to Stamford Bridge for next season.
Onana has shone in his first campaign at Inter since joining from Ajax last summer. The 27-year-old’s Champions League heroics have particularly caught the eye.
Inter Line Up Empoli Star As Replacement If Onana Leaves
According to Pedulla, if Inter are to accept a bit from Chelsea for Onana, they know who they’re going to sign to replace him.
The SportItalia transfer expert reports that Inter will be ready to move for Empoli keeper Guglielmo Vicario.
The 26-year-old has been something of a breakout star in Serie A over the past couple of seasons.
