Spanish giants FC Barcelona could reportedly turn to an African star as a replacement for a player who could leave the Camp Nou in January.
The Blaugrana signed Senegal right-back Moussa Wague for their reserve side at the beginning of the season, with the hope the 20-year-old will break into the first team sooner rather than later.
However, Wague could soon have an African teammate if second-choice goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen decides to leave the club in the upcoming transfer window.
According to Marca, Barcelona are keen to bring in Cameroon and Ajax Amsterdam shot-stopper Andre Onana as Cillessen's replacment if the Dutchman leaves the Camp Nou.
The 22-year-old came through Barca's famous La Masia academy before joining Ajax in 2015. He then became a key player for the Dutch side, and was part of the young team that reached the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League final.
He is also currently Cameroon's first-choice goalkeeper, and has represented the Indomitable Lions eight times so far.
With Cillessen expected to ask for a transfer in January, Barcelona would reportedly be prepared to let him go for €25 million (R402 million), while Onana is believed to be available for a fee of between €15 million (R241 million) and €20 million (R321 million).
