Arteta decides against signing £60m star for Arsenal

 Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta and the club’s transfer chief Edu have reached a final decision regarding Everton midfielder Amadou Onana.

The Gunners are in search of a player to complement Declan Rice in the midfield.

Although experienced midfielder Jorginho extended his contract for another year last month, the departures of Mohamed Elneney and the anticipated exit of Thomas Partey have underscored the need for midfield reinforcements.

Initially linked to Arsenal in January, Onana will not be pursued by the Premier League North London club, according to the Mirror.

Arsenal have decided against making a bid for the £60 million-rated Belgium international, as he does not fit Arteta’s tactical plans.

Everton’s financial difficulties mean they are likely to sell one of their key players this summer, with Onana expressing his desire to showcase his talents at Euro 2024 in hopes of attracting potential suitors.
