It’s no secret that Chelsea are on the lookout for a new goalkeeper in the upcoming summer transfer window, but settling on the right target is not as easy as it sounds.

Onana starred during Ajax’s run to the Champions League semi-final last season, and his impressive performances have convinced the Blues that he could become the new number one at Stamford Bridge.
The former Barcelona shot-stopper has two years remaining on his current contract, so Ajax find themselves in a strong position to negotiate for the time being, and they will be fielding calls from some of football’s elite clubs.
Onana has been a first-team regular for the Dutch champions for the last four seasons, and he has continued to make a name for himself as one of European football’s most exciting goalkeepers.
