Chelsea the preferred destination for Andre Onana

Chelsea have emerged as the preferred destination for Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana this summer, with the Blues considering whether to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Kepa was dropped for Saturday's draw with Leicester City, with Willy Caballero preferred by manager Frank Lampard at the King Power Stadium.

That decision was taken off the back of some disappointing performances from Spain international Kepa, who is two years into a seven-year deal at Stamford Bridge.


Onana, meanwhile, has two years left on his contract with Ajax and is keen to move on at the end of the season.

The Cameroon international sees the Premier League as an ideal landing spot, and it is understood that recent concerns over Kepa's form have led Onana to believe that Stamford Bridge can be the perfect place for him to establish himself in the English game.

A product of Barcelona's La Masia academy, it has long been thought that the Spanish champions would be at the front of the queue for the 23-year-old should he look to depart the Johan Cruyff ArenA
