Arsenal fans fear missing out on Onana as rivals emerge as keen

Fans are now fearing the worst as other potential suitors join the race to sign Andre Onana this summer, with Arsenal claimed not to have tabled a bid as of yet.

We’ve been strongly linked with a move to bring the Cameroon international into the club this summer, with much speculation claiming the results of his appeal from a doping ban would play a role in negotiations.

The goalkeeper has since had those results, with his ban being reduced from 12 months down to nine, with him being allowed to make his return to action in November.

Charles Watts, Arsenal correspondent for Goal, insists that while we have held talks with the player´s representatives, no bid has been tabled yet, and now fans are growing worried about us missing out on another target, after Emi Buendia joined Aston Villa despite our own interest.

Our reason for supposedly not tabling an offer as of yet could well be down to Bernd Leno. The German is our current number one, but with him currently at Euro 2020, he may well have put his future on hold.

Leno has already admitted that he is open to seeking out a new challenge, but has also said that he isn´t desperate to leave, while Onana isn´t likely to join if he isn´t going to be guaranteed regular playing time.

Has the Buendia deal left a sour taste in the mouths, increasing the paranoia that we may struggle in this summer´s window?

    Dilly-dallying & procastination from the look of things for decades now seem to be strongly embodied & enshrined in our Core Value & Policy as an established Football Club.

    Don’t know what to say anymore…!

  2. Sean Williams says:

    Purely my opinion. Arteta and Edu are not capable of quickly winding up deals. They are both Rookies and do have any idea or experience in how to quickly and sharply get their man. Being a Rookie is not just accusatory, it means that they actually, factually, don’t know how to do what is needed. It’s pathetic really.

    1. Ackshay says:

      Yeah we get it everything is arteta fault to you, guess it was also his fault when hugely experienced wenger and dick law did the exact same thing.

      FACTS dont lie it was arteta fault that we couldn’t seal both pele and maradona deals when they were begging to join arsenal.

      1. Angus says:

        lol Ackshay but spot on! Arteta should never of forced Dean out or sold to Kronke or giving Ozil a new contract or pumped billions into Chelsea/City etc.!

    He won’t able to play until November and there’s better keepers out there, not bothered if this fall’s through, we should be targeting midfield first and foremost but not all convinced we have the right team to get what’s needed!

  4. Durand says:

    Thought Arteta and Edu had a list of players they wanted that was already shared with the board.

    So wondering what is the holdup? If it’s because we have to sell players first, then we are in serious trouble as a club.

    Hope we aren’t chasing ungettables and lose out on some quality players.

      I just saw your comment i was asking myself the same thing they told us back in January that they had already identified and started working on our targets what the heck?

    2. Angus says:

      We have to sell 1st obviously or we’re left with players who we can’t play which either leaves us screwed ala Sokratis/Ozil this year (pandemic but still screwed us and still is) or bent over a barrel on selling price. Way we are conducting business recently makes sense including holding out Ozil til Jan. The message is you won’t bend us over barrel anymore, we’ll take the loss if needs be. Why do Lyon and Spurs get to have reputations as hard negotiators but we don’t? Is that good for us? People are moaning because we want more for Xhaka whilst wanting us to bid more for others its insane.

  5. siamois says:

    What is happening at our club?our bid was considered laughable by Ajax now our first bid for the Belgian kid has been turned down for being too low.. then there was the Buendia saga the Xhaka deal is at a stalemate because Arsenal wants an extra 2 millions either we are really that desperate for every penny despite promises of serious investments or we don’t really want to sell Xhaka either way not good also MA and Edu said back in January that we had already identified our targets what’s going on?we under bid for our targets and expect too much for our deadwood!

    1. Angus says:

      Media keeps saying we’re bidding low almost like they want to outrage you so you click and comment?
