Arsenal in 'constant contact' over Amadou Onana transfer with Everton demanding £61.5m for star midfielder | The Sun
ARSENAL are interested in signing Everton midfielder Amadou Onana this summer after a failed approach in January, according to reports.
Onana arrived at Everton last summer in a reported £33million move from French side Lille.
Everton currently find themselves 16th, in the midst of a relegation battle and remain out of the drop zone on goal difference.
According to Dutch outlet Het Nieuwsblad the 21 year old didn't leave the Toffees in January because he didn't want to abandon the club during their relegation fight.
Sport Witness have reported that if Everton go down it's certain the former Lille man will leave Goodison Park whilst adding there's a 99 per cent chance he leaves if they beat the drop.
The report adds that Premier League leaders Arsenal are among the options and have been closely following Onana since January.
