Liverpool have been monitoring the Eintracht Frankfurt defender Evan Ndicka during the current campaign along with Arsenal, according to reports.
Both English clubs were keeping tabs with the progress of the France U21 international before the season was brought to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic, along with Valencia and Sevilla in Spain and both Inter and AC Milan in Serie A.
Sky Sports revealed that the Reds are considering looking into the transfer market for a new centre back due to the uncertain future of Dejan Lovren. Liverpool currently sit 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League ahead of Manchester City and are just two wins away from our first domestic title in 30 years.
N’Dicka has made 14 starts in the Bundesliga this season with just one stint from the bench and has made more appearances during the campaign as a left-back, which is the sort of versatility that Jurgen Klopp likes, even if he doesn’t think so himself.
Would you sign Evan N'Dicka?
With a number of players set to leave Anfield this summer, now is a good time to start planning to bring in the suitable replacements that are required to replenish the squad.
N’Dicka is one for the future and would be a good move for us. He has averaged 2.7 clearances and 1.3 long balls in the league, which suggests that he will fit into the German tactician’s style of play.
With the guidance of Virgil van Dijk next to him who has the ability to improve everyone around him, there is no better player to learn from. N’Dicka is valued at £22.5m by TransferMarkt but it is expected that he will cost much more than that.
