Chelsea are ready to make a crazy swap offer to Inter, as they want Andre Onana. The Blues are looking for an upgrade over Mendy and will offer Inter a player plus cash deal. Onana has been brilliant for Inter so far, as he has saved games single-handedly, including the crucial 2nd leg against FC Porto. However, Chelsea are keen to sign him, as Graham Potter wants to improve his defense, starting from the keeper.
The Blues have been struggling this season, despite several signings in the winter transfer window. Graham Potter believes a quality keeper will help him to get better results, and Onana is one of the best keepers in Europe. The Cameroonian keeper proved his mettle in the Champions League Round of 16 game against Porto. He made a quick double-save to keep Inter’s lead intact. Also, Onana helps Inter with the build-up, as he is comfortable with the ball on his feet. The former Ajax keeper’s distribution is brilliant and helps Inter to evade the press easily.
Chelsea want Onana and are ready to offer €40 million and Mendy in return
The Blues are willing to make a tempting offer to Inter to show their interest in the former Ajax keeper. Chelsea will give €40 million and Edouard Mendy for Onana, as they want him desperately. Mendy has fallen out of preference and has sustained injury serious shoulder injury. Kepa is the first-choice keeper for Potter, but he wants an upgrade in the summer.
Inter are struggling financially and have to generate profit in the summer with transfers. Also, the Nerazzurri have to find a replacement for Skriniar. However, Onana is not looking for a move from Inter, and the Blues are unlikely to play in the Champions League next season. They need a miracle to get in the top four as they are stuck in 10th position currently.
