Chelsea have been handed a major transfer boost as Everton midfielder Amadou Onana has dropped a huge hint on his future in English football.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent weeks, with reports suggesting that the Blues are keen to add the talented midfielder to their ranks.
And Onana has now fuelled speculation that he could be on his way to Chelsea, after he posted a cryptic message on social media.
The post, which was accompanied by a picture of Onana in an Everton shirt, read: “The future is bright.”
The post has sent Chelsea fans into a frenzy, with many speculating that the post could be a hint that Onana is set to join the Blues.
Onana has been in impressive form for Everton this season, making 22 appearances in all competitions and scoring two goals.
The midfielder has also been linked with a move to Manchester United, but it appears that Chelsea are now in pole position to sign the player.
Chelsea have been in the market for a new midfielder in recent weeks, with manager Frank Lampard keen to add some depth to his squad.
Onana would certainly fit the bill, as he is a dynamic and creative midfielder who is capable of playing in a variety of positions.
He is also a player who is comfortable on the ball and is capable of playing in a number of different systems.
Chelsea have already signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner this summer, and the addition of Onana would be another major coup for the club.
The Blues are currently fourth in the Premier League table and are pushing for a top-four finish this season.
The signing of Onana would certainly bolster their chances of achieving that goal, and it appears that the player himself is keen to make the move to Stamford Bridge.
Only time will tell if the move comes to fruition, but it appears that Chelsea have been handed a major transfer boost as Onana has dropped a huge hint on his future in English football.
