Wilfred Ndidi has been heavily linked with a move from the King Power Stadium this summer after negotiations to extend his contract have been stalling for months now
Liverpool are still in the race to acquire the signing of Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi from Leicester City before the end of the transfer window on Friday, Soccernet.ng reports.
The Reds are looking for an established replacement for Brazilian midfielder Fabinho, who left the club to join Saudi Arabia giants Al-Hilal this window, but it has been hard for them to get the right option.
They have already brought in Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Wataru Endo this summer, but Endo is the only natural defensive-minded option, and with the Japanese needing time to settle in England, they now could turn to recently relegated Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, as reported by the Independent.
The Foxes are willing to do business before the close of the window, and that could pave the way for a deal to be agreed with Liverpool before tomorrow’s deadline.
It was also reported a few days ago that Ndidi has given the green light for a move to the City Ground, with personal terms already sorted between him and the club.
While another report that came in yesterday revealed that Forest have presented an opening bid to Leicester, and negotiations have started between the two clubs.
Leicester have signed Harry Winks from Tottenham and brought in Cesare Casadei on loan from Chelsea to strengthen their midfield this summer. They have, though, lost Youri Tielemans to Aston Villa, James Maddison to Tottenham, and Nampals Mendy as a free agent.
They could now allow Ndidi to depart as well, although only time will tell which club he will end with by the close of the window on Friday, September 1st.
