Chelsea & Arsenal transfer boost as Ajax chief Marc Overmars reveals contract talks with Andre Onana have been 'cut off'
ARSENAL have been handed a transfer boost with Ajax reportedly cutting off negotiations to extend keeper Andre Onana's deal.
The Cameroonian's current contract doesn't expire until next summer, but it seems unlikely he will be sticking around much longer than that.
Director of Football and former Gunners star Marc Overmars told Ziggo Sport that the Dutch giants are 'not working on a contract extension.
As reported by VI.NL, Overmars continued: "We tried, but it didn't work.
"You make choices and then it has to come from both sides. We didn't feel like he really wanted to.
"I read somewhere that we pulled the plug and that's right. We do that for a reason."
Ajax could look to sell Onana in winter rather than lose their No1 on a free contract.
Arsenal were previously linked with Onana before they snapped up Aaron Ramsdale from Sheffield United.

But with Bernd Leno ousted from the team, if he decides to leave the Gunners would look for more competition for Ramsdale.
Chelsea were another side linked with the Ajax man.
Edouard Mendy has established himself as No1 with Kepa relegated to back-up duties.
And similar to Arsenal, if Kepa moves on for first-team football, Thomas Tuchel will be on the lookout for another keeper.
