Andre Onana ‘keen’ on Chelsea transfer but Frank Lampard has alternative in mind

Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana is reportedly keen on a move to Chelsea with Blues boss Frank Lampard potentially in the summer transfer market for a new shot-stopper.

Current Chelsea No 1 Kepa Arrizabalaga has made a number of high-profile errors in his two campaigns at Stamford Bridge and is under pressure.

The Spaniard was dropped earlier this season with Chelsea proving to be leaky at the back this campaign.

Lampard recently said of Kepa: “He’s big for us. He’s huge. Confidence is huge when you’re in that individual position. He and his team-mates should be boosted by that.

“Top teams need goalkeepers making big saves at big times and he did that today.”

Chelsea are reportedly keeping tabs on Onana, who has impressed for Dutch giants Ajax in recent years.

And The Athletic claim the Cameroon international is attracted by the idea of joining Lampard’s squad.

Though it’s reported that Ajax are in no hurry to sell having already benefitted from a number of lucrative sales.
