Everton could sell Amadou Onana to raise funds this summer.

That’s according to iNews, who have reported that the club could offload the midfielder to ease FFP concerns and address an ‘unbalanced’ squad.

Flemish-based newspaper Het Nieuwsblad had recently claimed that Onana was very unhappy at Goodison Park and wanted to leave the club, however iNews have stated that these rumours aren’t true but he could be sold anyway.

The 21-year-old joined the Toffees for £33 million last summer and has been a revelation since his move, proving to be one of the few positives during a terrible campaign.

Onana was previously hailed as ‘one of the most talented young players in Europe’ by Roberto Martinez and could have had a huge future on Merseyside if he was to stay.

However, Le Soir have reported that Everton have slapped a £55m price tag on Onana as they look to make a hefty profit on the Belgian.

The likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with Onana this summer and he looks to be the most likely to leave Merseyside in the coming months.

Selling Amadou Onana would be a mess for Everton

The recent news that Amadou Onana wanted to leave Everton were fairly understandable given their difficult season and the state of the club off the pitch.


However, what will make it more difficult for the fans is that one of their best players without any choice. If the Toffees had no FFP worries and if they didn’t currently have to deal with the mess of the board and the takeover, Onana could still be at Goodison Park next season.

But instead Everton will be left with a threadbare midfield and could be forced to replace Onana with mediocrity, while bolstering other positions with his profit.

Sean Dyche’s side have been linked with a number of players in the free agent and loan market and it appears that could be where most of their business is done – a tough pill to swallow for a fanbase that deserves much better.
