Inter Milan is preparing to part ways with André Onana and is in search of a suitable replacement. The Italian club has narrowed down its choices to two goalkeepers, Hugo Lloris and Brice Samba. As discussions progress, Inter Milan aims to secure the best option to fill the void left by Onana.
Seko Fofana’s Impending Departure
Following a successful season that saw RC Lens qualify for the Champions League, the club faces the possibility of losing key players this summer. Among the potential departures is Seko Fofana, a highly sought-after Ivorian midfielder.
Despite interest from multiple clubs, including PSG, Fofana appears to have decided to join Al-Nassr. A three-year contract is reportedly on the horizon for Fofana, indicating that the transfer is well underway.
Another player who may leave RC Lens is Lois Openda, the talented attacking prospect. RB Leipzig has been monitoring Openda for several weeks and has already made multiple offers to secure his services. However, at present, there is no definitive agreement between the player and the club. The situation remains unresolved, leaving Openda’s future up in the air.
Inter Milan’s Interest in Hugo Lloris
While initially considering Brice Samba as a replacement for Onana, Inter Milan quickly shifted its focus to Tottenham’s experienced goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris. The report says that the Nerazzurri have expressed a strong interest in Lloris as a potential solution between the posts.

Securing Hugo Lloris would be a significant boost for RC Lens, as they aim to compete in the Champions League. With his exceptional performances, Samba played a crucial role in Lens’s remarkable defensive record last season, conceding only 29 goals in 38 games.
Inter Milan’s preference for Lloris is partially motivated by financial considerations, as the 36-year-old French goalkeeper is valued at €3 million compared to Samba’s €13 million price tag, as per Transfermarkt. This potential move represents a smart financial and sporting decision for both clubs.
As Inter Milan prepares to bid farewell to André Onana, they are actively seeking a suitable replacement. The club has shown a keen interest in Hugo Lloris, considering him a viable option to strengthen their goalkeeping department.
RC Lens, on the other hand, would benefit from retaining Brice Samba, who played a pivotal role in their defensive success.
