L’Équipe are reporting that Bordeaux midfielder Junior Onana (22), once linked with a move to AC Milan, is set to join Serie A side Cremonese in a €5m deal.
According to L’Équipe, Cremonese and Bordeaux have come to an agreement on a fee of €5m plus an extra €1m in bonuses. Earlier this summer he had looked set to join Serie A rivals AC Milan, however, the reigning Italian champions were only willing to loan the player. The deal, which will likely see him join Cremonese, also includes a percentage on any future sale.
Whilst L’Équipe report that he is set for a move to Italy, the French publication also reveals that two new competitors have entered the race for Onana’s signature in the past hours. RC Lens and Greek side Olympiacos have reportedly shown themselves as interested, although it remains to be seen if their interest has come too late.
