Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have all been linked with the former Lille midfielder over the past 12 months, and he is deemed likely to leave Everton before the transfer window shuts.

FootballTransfers understands that Man Utd are interested in signing Onana as they look to sign a long-term replacement for Casemiro, who is wanted by the Saudi Pro League, while Arsenal are admirers too.

We have been told that Mikel Arteta’s side are one of the leading contenders to sign the Belgian, while Bayern Munich and Newcastle United are also keen.

Chelsea’s interest has seemingly dwindled since the purchases of Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia last summer, but the Blues could feasibly reignite a pursuit if Conor Gallagher is sold.

“I feel like presenting myself to the European top and showing what I have to offer. This European Championship is a stage.

Onana continued: “I want to be a much better player, and my goal is to play for an international world club in three years.

“I also want to have qualified with Belgium for the 2026 World Cup in America in three years. I dream about that. And I will do everything I can to make these dreams come true too.

“I have to and will answer this very professionally: I’m under contract with Everton – and I’ll leave everything else to the media. I’ll just do my best at the European Championships and then we’ll see.”
