Chelsea Completes the Signing of Ajax GoalKeeper As Star Fly in For Chelsea Medical

Chelsea are looking to strengthen a number of positions in their squad this summer.

The Blues have already made moves to add to their attacking prowess with the signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner from Ajax and RB Leipzig respectively.

Frank Lampard is also looking to add Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz to his squad, with negotiations continuing between the two clubs.

But it is not only in forward areas that Chelsea will look to add to in the transfer window.

The Cameroon international was a revelation in the club’s Champions League run to the semi finals in 2019.

And the 24-year-old has made sure he’s shared the wealth accrued from his fame with his homeland.

Last week, it was reported that Onana uses part of his salary to fund an electric grid that provides electricity for a small African town.

He began his youth career at Barcelona, but annoyed the Catalan giants when he snubbed an offer of a contract to join Ajax at 18.

The decision was clearly the correct one, though, as Onana has gone on to become one of Europe’s most sought-after keepers.

CHARITABLE CAUSE
Born in Cameroon, it wasn’t Onana’s intention to support his mother’s hometown Mengueme.

But, having signed a new £20,000-per-week contract last year, he decided he had to give something back.

Onana put his money to good use, funding a power grid that provides electricity for the Essoessam population.

He, literally, took the people of Menguene out of darkness and curbed their reliance on kerosene lamps
