Pundit tells Arsenal to consider an alternative to Caicedo

Arsenal has been told to consider a move for Amadou Onana before the transfer window closes as they struggle to complete a transfer for Moises Caicedo.

The Ecuadorian has become their main target in the last few weeks, but Brighton does not want to sell unless Arsenal meets their asking price for the 21-year-old.

The midfielder has even requested the transfer, but the Seagulls instead banned him from training until the close of the window.

Reports have linked Mikel Arteta’s side with a move for Onana in the last few weeks, but their attention is strongly on Caicedo.

As Brighton refuses to sell, former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson has urged the Gunners to move for Onana instead, even though he thinks that deal will also be difficult.

He tells Football Insider:

“I have been really impressed with him since he’s come to England. He has not been consistent this season but he has easily been one of Everton’s best players.

“If Arsenal are priced out of a move for Caicedo, they could put in a bid for Onana. It would certainly be cheaper.

“Everton are not in a position where they can afford to sell anybody though. They have just lost [Anthony] Gordon and I don’t think they should be selling anyone else given the position they are in. They have not spent their money well in recent years.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Onana has been in terrific form in the last few months after joining Everton in the summer.

But we will have to put in a huge bid to make the Premier League strugglers sell to us because he is a key man in their squad.

  1. Nah We’ve already shown our hand, it’s Caicedo or someone with a RC. Otherwise, clubs are gonna rinse us clean. Everton will rinse us.

  2. What would be the harm in a cheeky bid for £45-
    50M to rest Evertons resolve? They just sold
    another of there young, seemingly untouchable
    talents, AG, to Newcastle for around the same
    price. I personally rate Onana over MC and think
    he would a fantastic addition to the midfield
    and perfect cover for TP. Sangare, Haidara, Manu
    Kone, I Bamba and K. Thuram are other options
    that should be considered.

  3. Agree wholeheartedly ACE. Plenty out there as good as Caicedo and far better in terms of value for money. Onana has impressed me a lot and has adjusted well to the demands of the EPL.He is someone we should seriously consider bringing in during the summer window.

  4. This Onana kid is an upcoming powerful player the destroyer type, Conte kind of player not sure he’s the gaffer ball playing type.

    We should have tied Tossard to Caicedo and just maybe a bid of £90 / 100 mil to land both would have had seems more attractive to Brighton.

    1. Onana wouldn’t of slotted in for
      Belgium @ the WC of he didn’t
      possess the technical ability at
      this level.

      Personally I think the lack of
      quality talent around him in the
      Toffes starting 11 reinforces this
      inaccurate assessment.

      Dude is a huge talent


  5. I imagine Dyche has been guaranteed that no more players will be sold without his agreement – and he’d be nuts to agree to Onana going on the last day of the window.
