The Nerazzurri have added a new keeper to their ranks ahead of the next season.


Inter officially confirmed the signing of Andre Onana on Friday.

The Cameroon international ends his six-year spell at Ajax to join the Serie A giants. Inter didn’t disclose the length of Onana’s contract, but Italian outlets have claimed the deal runs until the summer of 2026.

“Dreams come true,” Onana wrote on Twitter after his unveiling at Inter. “Super excited to join my new club, Inter.


“I want to thank the president, the whole board of Inter, the coach and my own team for making my dream reality.”

Onana spent nine months on the sidelines after receiving a ban for using a banned substance. The Cameroon international will provide competition for experienced keeper Samir Handanovic at San Siro.

According to reports from Italian media, Onana will earn around €3 million net per year at Inter. He becomes the first Cameroonian star to join the Nerazzurri ranks after Samuel Eto’o, who won a treble at Inter.


Onana joined Ajax from Barcelona’s academy in January 2015 and came up through the Dutch side’s youth ranks. He made 214 senior appearances for the Eredivisie giants, winning two league titles and two Dutch cups at the club.

The signing of Onana comes after Inter’s moves for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Kristjan Asllani and Romelu Lukaku earlier this summer. The club hope to reclaim their Scudetto title after finishing as runner-ups behind their city-rivals Milan last season.
