Chelsea already frustrated Arsenal this January when they signed Mykhaylo Mudryk; now, a repeat may be on the cards with Amadou Onana..
According to Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Arsenal is interested in signing Everton’s No.8 this month due to injury concerns surrounding Mohamed Elneny.
Mikel Arteta hopes to sign another central midfielder to ensure his team has adequate depth in that position.
However, after stealing Mudryk from Arsenal in an £88.5 million deal from Shakhtar Donetsk, Chelsea may be about to frustrate the north Londoners once more.
According to the Times, Chelsea is also interested in Onana and has increased their pursuit of the Belgian international..
The Blues reportedly wanted to sign Moises Caicedo or Enzo Fernandez ahead of the 21-year-old, but Brighton and Benfica are both refusing to lower their asking prices..
Benfica have referred Todd Boehly to their £106 million release clause, while Brighton want £100 million for their Ecuador international.
As a result of Everton’s financial difficulties, Chelsea saw an opportunity to sign Onana.
The 6ft 4in powerhouse only joined the Toffees from Lille in a £33m deal in August, but he could leave Goodison Park as Everton face financial fair play issues..
Arteta has proven to be an excellent coach when it comes to working with young players, and we believe the Belgian maestro’s game will improve significantly under the Spaniard..

If Onana joins Arsenal this month, he has a good chance of winning the Premier League.
Graham Potter, on the other hand, is struggling at Chelsea, with the Blues currently sitting 10th in the Premier League, and the pressure of that situation could potentially affect Onana’s development if he does join..
