Manchester United are considering a move for Everton midfielder Amadou Onana.

That’s according to the Mirror, who claims the youngster is seen as a potential alternative to Sofyan Amrabat.

Manchester United have been chasing the Fiorentina midfielder all summer but are yet to land Amrabat, with interest from Saudi Arabia also growing.

The Premier League outfit are now looking at other options to bolster their midfield and see Onana as one player who would fit the bill at Old Trafford.

The ‘unique’ Belgian made 29 starts for Everton last season as he became a standout player as they narrowly avoid relegation to the Championship.

Onana has already been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and West Ham this summer, though talk of a move away from Goodison Park had gone quiet.

However, both United and Chelsea have reportedly reignited their interest in the 21-year-old, though it is unclear whether they would be willing to meet the Toffees’ £55 million valuation.

Erik ten Hag’s side are also looking at Tyler Adams, who would be significantly cheaper than Onana.

Amadou Onana will surely stay at Everton this summer

A terrific season for Amadou Onana last time out unsurprisingly led to interest in his signature, however there has been very little talk over the last month or so.

While a number of clubs have thrown their name into the hat, no one seems to have prioritised the Belgium international as their first choice target. Instead, he has become an alternative for both Manchester United and Chelsea.

Onana’s £55m price tag has surely put off potential suitors, who feel they can invest that kind of cash elsewhere. Given the top clubs are largely focusing on other midfielders, it would be surprised to see them decide to cough up such a fee for Onana if they don’t want him as much as they should.
