Arsenal are prepared to lock horns with Barcelona in the race to sign Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana, according to Dutch publication De Telegraaf.
The Cameroon international has emerged as a rumoured target for the Spanish champions earlier this week.
The 22-year-old has caught the eye with his displays in Eredivisie and has also played a key role in Ajax’s run to the last-16 stage of the Champions League.
Despite having to compete with the Catalan giants, the aforementioned report suggests that Arsenal are willing to pay up to £26million for the Cameroonian shot-stopper.
