Andre Onana’s agent, Albert Botines, has confirmed that Barcelona are interested in bringing the goalkeeper back to the Camp Nou but says the club have not yet made an offer.

The 24-year-old is also being linked with a host of Europe’s clubs and has confirmed that after five years at Ajax “the time has come to take a step.”

Botines says he has already been in touch with Barcelona who have offered to include players in the deal.

“There is a lot of movement around André [Onana]. Barcelona has not yet made an official offer to Ajax, but have seriously expressed their far-reaching interest with me.

“Of course, the current situation in Barcelona also plays a role. The club has to make financial concessions, so have also suggested involving current Barcelona goalkeepers in the deal.”

There is plenty of speculation about Barcelona goalkeepers currently. Neto is being rumored to return to Valencia after just one season, while Barcelona have reportedly halted talks over a new contract for Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Onana has said previously he would love to return to Barcelona, but it’s difficult why he would come back unless he was going to be first choice.
