Ten Hag impressed with £33.7m Premier League ‘powerhouse’ who can play ‘every position’ in midfield

Amadou Onana, an Everton midfielder, has been linked to Manchester United.

After being impressed by Amadou Onana’s performances for the Toffees, Erik ten Hag is reportedly considering a summer swoop for him, according to Teamtalk.

If Everton is demoted, United will be more likely to make a move for Onana because they view him as a valuable addition. They are currently two points above the drop zone in 17th place.

Onana, who is just 21 years old, has played for Everton in 32 matches this year across all competitions, including 29 starts.

Manchester United would like Onana, Amadou
Onana has proven this season that he is a bright talent with significant potential. Don’t let Everton’s poor league standing diminish his enormous potential.

“Onana is likely to seek a move away from Everton if they are relegated, and the player is interested in playing at the highest level possible to cement his place in the Belgium squad,” the Teamtalk report continues.

Due to his 6 feet 4 inch frame, Onana is referred to as a “powerhouse,” and the midfielder thinks he can fill a variety of positions.

“I think I can play every position in centre midfield, whether that’s as a holding midfielder or a box-to-box as a No 8,” he said in an interview with The Guardian. I’ll play wherever the manager needs me to.

According to The Mirror, Onana cost Everton £33.7 million last summer. If he is sold, his old team Lille would profit from a sell-on fee.

If United must match this amount in order to sign him, it might be a wise investment. Onana would be half as expensive as Moises Caicedo of Brighton, even at £40 million.

Onana was one of the three midfielders that Premier League clubs signed last summer that Manchester United might have regretted passing up.

In the upcoming years, Onana’s value is anticipated to increase as a Belgian international. This will be more difficult to pull off if Everton stays in the league, but it’s interesting to see United considering it.
