Arsenal suffer goalkeeper blow

Arsenal have suffered a blow after Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana agreed to join Ajax.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with the Cameroon international who is currently serving the drugs ban imposed after he accidentally took pills prescribed for his wife which contained a banned substance.

That ban is now set to end on November 4th and, despite the interest from North London, Ajax has agreed to join Ligue 1 side Lyon for a fee of £6.8 million.

And that leaves Arsenal with a  problem. Bernd Leno remains the number one, but he has previously intimated he would not be averse to a move elsewhere. Last season’s back-up Mat Ryan, who was on loan from Brighton, has now signed for Real Sociedad, meaning that there is a lack of cover in the position.

Icelandic international Alex Runarsson, signed from Dijon last year, proved out of his depth in senior English football, whilst teenager Arthur Okonkwo has just been promoted to the first-team squad.
