Incoming Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech is hoping to persuade the Premier League club to bring Ajax team-mate Andre Onana with him to Stamford Bridge, Sportsmail has been told.
Winger Ziyech will move to England this summer after he last month agreed a £37million deal with Frank Lampard’s side.
The 26-year-old forward is close friends with Ajax goalkeeper Onana, who also wants a Premier League move.
As recently reported by Sportsmail, Cameroon international Onana would prefer a move to either Chelsea or Tottenham at the end of the season after five years with the Dutch giants.
And it’s claimed Ziyech is hoping to help secure a deal for his team-mate and friend, who would likely cost between £40-50million. It’s understood Frank Lampard would like to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer, even despite Kepa Arrizabalaga’s recent return to the first team.
Tottenham are also on the hunt for a new keeper, with Jose Mourinho’s side keen to land a No 2 who would provide serious competition for Hugo Lloris.
Lloris is under the spotlight after his display in Spurs’ midweek Champions League defeat by RB Leipzig.
