Man Utd, Chelsea and Tottenham in transfer battle for Champions League heroes Inter Milan

According to reports from Italy, TOTTENHAM are in a three-way battle for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana alongside Chelsea and Manchester United.

Semper Inter report that Chelsea have had a concrete interest in the Cameroonian star, 27, for months but are hitting a snag with Inter’s demands.

Inter prefer a direct cash deal while Chelsea hoped to include Kepa Arrizabalaga or Edouard Mendy in a transfer that would allow them to downsize their bloated squad.

Erik ten Hag is also an admirer of the goalkeeper, having previously coached him at Ajax but United have yet to translate that into any concrete interest.

That has left the door open for Spurs, who hope to replace their aging captain Hugo Lloris this summer.

The former France captain has struggled with form this season and made several serious mistakes before picking up a season-ending injury in April.

The Lilywhites have now inquired about the availability of Onana.

The Inter man represents an attractive offer for clubs that have played in an Inter team that has won the Supercoppa Italiana and Coppa Italia and reached the Champions League final.

Onana has kept 19 clean sheets in his 40 appearances for Inter this season and is comfortable with the ball on his feet.

While he joined Inter Milan from Ajax on a free transfer last season, the Nerazzurri are ready to capitalize on the star to comply with Italy’s financial fair play rules.

Onana has also been linked with a return to Barcelona having gone through their academy before joining Ajax as a youngster.

However, Barca have cooled their interest as a number of Premier League clubs are willing to shell out big bucks for the star.

Semper Inter report that Inter are hoping there will be a bidding war due to the number of clubs interested.
