On Tuesday, we covered an article from AS in Spain stating that Unai Emery had made it clear he was fully counting on Bernd Leno going forward.

That being said, the Gunners will still need a backup for the German following Petr Cech’s retirement announcement this season, and they seemingly already have someone in mind.

According to De Telegraaf, both Arsenal and Tottenham are keeping tabs on Ajax’s André Onana, who is also being looked at by West Ham and Barcelona.

The move makes equal sense for Spurs, with Michael Vorm, 35, set to become a free agent in the summer.

Signing the Cameroon international would certainly take some pressure off the club for the post-Lloris era, as the France international turned 32 in December.

The problem is, Onana would be a backup in both scenarios, whereas a stay at Ajax would guarantee him Champions League football and first-team football.

Furthermore, any transfer for Arsenal and Tottenham would be an expensive one, as the Eredivisie side aren’t particularly open to a transfer, wanting a minimum of €30m for their key man.

That’s a lot for a backup, even if he could end up being a long-term investment by Spurs.

There might be interest, but we find it hard to believe either side will be willing to spend that much in the summer.
