North London club Arsenal have shown interest in signing Leicester City’s Nigerian International Wilfred Ndidi.
“Yes we have received enquiries from clubs in England and France but nothing concrete yet except Arsenal” a source close to the players’ agent told 90minutesgoal.com.
“Even his foster parents in Belgium Theo and Marleen Van Vlierden are supportive of this new development as they are fans of Arsenal” the source added.
The 21-year-old has been a revelation for Leicester City since joining the club as a replacement for Ngolo Kante from Belgium side Genk in 2017 in a £15million deal.
It’s reported that Arsenal wants to conclude the deal before the World Cup as the Gunners feel Ndidi worth might skyrocket if he puts in an excellent display in Russia.
Wilfred Ndidi has more successful tackles in Europe’s top five leagues (Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and La Liga) this season so far and is an integral member of the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
Ndidi is contracted to Leicester City until the summer of 2022.
