The Mirror claim Onana, 24, is viewed as the ‘perfect replacement’ and the Cameroon international could be signed for a relatively modest £25million.

The Blues had originally wanted £25million for their left-back, but website Calciomercato claim the price has plummeted below £18m.

It’s said that Emerson has a ‘cracked relationship’ with Chelsea having fallen behind Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta in the pecking order and that mixed with the coronavirus pandemic has lowered his asking price.
