According to Fabrizio Romano AC Milan have agreed personal terms for Bordeaux’s Jean Onana (22), with the Italian side preparing an offer for the midfielder – this week is reportedly key in making progress on the signing.
Le10sport reported earlier this month that La Liga side Girona made an offer for Onana, whilst AC Milan and Napoli were also interested in the Cameroon international.
Although under contract until 2026, Onana has been touted for a departure this summer due to Bordeaux’s relegation to Ligue 2. Onana has featured in all three of Bordeaux’s opening matches in Ligue 2 and last season, he made 23 Ligue 1 appearances.
According to Le10sport, Onana had an offer on the table from Girona, who currently sit 19th in La Liga – however it appears that AC Milan have advanced the most on the deal, and need to agree on a fee in order to progress further.
Fabián Ruiz’s impending €25m transfer to PSG could allow Napoli to advance a deal for Onana. Bordeaux’s asking price has not yet been revealed, but they will likely garner a much higher fee than the €2m they paid Lille in the summer of 2021.
