Speaking about his future at Everton, Amadou Onana disclosed that several clubs approached him during the transfer season.

The Belgium international talked extensively about the differences between living under Frank Lampard and Sean Dyche and expressed his desire to become a star player at Everton in a comprehensive interview with Transfermarket.

 

Onana, who cost £34 million to join the Blues from LOSC Lille the previous season, was said to be leaving Goodison Park in the summer. The 22-year-old has reportedly drawn interest from Manchester United and Newcastle United in recent weeks after it was announced that Sandro Tonali would serve a 10-month ban for match-betting.

When asked about his future at Everton, Onana said, “I genuinely believe there are no boundaries for me.” That’s not meant to come across as haughty.

“But I believe in my abilities and that I can come to a top club and become a regular player there. Clubs came knocking, but I wanted to stay to develop further and become a top player at Everton, perhaps the best.

“I try to read almost nothing about it and keep it as far away from me as possible. I just want to concentrate on what’s important.

“Everton gave me the chance to play my first games in the Premier League. I want to repay that. I can only do that if I do my best and show good performances.”

Dyche replaced the sacked Lampard in January and managed to help the club preserve its top-flight status on the final day of last season. And reflecting on life under Dyche, Onana has revealed it has been an educational time for him.

He said: “Yeah, so I think I have my own playing style too… I’ve had to adapt. I mean, it’s different to Frank Lampard. He just brings something different.

“We also often go out for dinner with a few colleagues and sometimes at someone’s house. He’s someone who has helped me a lot, together with Idrissa.

“They are two players who have a lot of experience. Also Premier League experience, Idrissa with Paris Saint Germain.

“Those are the two players who have helped me the most. They make it easier for me. It’s a real pleasure to be able to play with them.”
