‘I don’t think that was his last dance’ – Reporter hints at big Everton player U-turn

According to journalist Dean Jones, there is a possibility that Everton midfielder Amadou Onana could remain at Goodison Park for the upcoming season due to his admiration for the club, writes the FFC. While there has been speculation about his future, i News suggests that Everton might consider significant offers for Onana as they aim to finance a rebuild following their close call with relegation this season.

The report mentions that Chelsea and Newcastle United have expressed interest in the Belgian international, but Everton’s midfield depth could help soften the impact if Onana does end up leaving the club.

Former Everton striker Kevin Campbell agrees with the notion that Onana could be sold during the offseason. He stated to Goodison News:

“Let’s be totally real, Everton aren’t in the position where if the right money comes in they can hold teams off. I don’t think they’re in that position. I think they’re in a position where they have to balance the books and they have to act smart in the transfer market. “Losing players is something that Everton are going to have to deal with, because they do have some very good players and Onana is one of them who I know there will be quite a few clubs interested in him if he’s available.”

Quoted by The Liverpool Echo, Onana shared a heartfelt message on social media after Everton’s 1-0 triumph against Bournemouth last weekend, securing the team’s survival on the last day of the season.

He said: “Whatever it took, it was worth it… Staying in the Premier League should be normal for a club this size. I want to thank you all because it’s been a very difficult season for us. Despite that, we all stuck together and you kept pushing us. If, at the end we made it, it’s because of your massive support throughout the season at home, but also away. So therefore, Toffees Army, thank you.”

According to Football Insider, Manchester United is also interested in pursuing Onana; however, Everton will make every effort to retain the 21-year-old at Goodison Park. In an interview with GIVEMESPORT, journalist Jones believes that Onana might choose to remain at Everton because of his fondness for the Premier League club.

Jones said: “I don’t think that was his last dance for Everton, to be honest. I think that whenever you see Onana and his rapport with the fans, it seems like he loves the place. I think he was just desperate to stay up.”
