Inter potentially signing Cameroonian goalkeeper Andre Onana from Dutch giants Ajax will not rule out the possibility of granting Nerazzurri captain Samir Handanovic a contract extension.

The 25-year-old was banned by UEFA in February for taking Furosemide but this has not deterred the Biscione from trying to bring the Cameroon international to Serie A on a free transfer.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Inter have not spoken to Handanovic about extending his contract, which expires in June 2022, and he has not made a decision regarding his playing career as yet.

Even if Onana does arrive for the 2022/23 campaign, the Nerazzurri would like to keep the Slovenian veteran in the squad due to his experience in Serie A and his presence in the locker room.

Onana has played in 204 competitive matches for Ajax since 2016, and he has played against Italian opposition previously, having featured for the Dutch giants when they eliminated Juventus from the 2018/19 Champions League in the quarter-finals.
