Everton joins race for Ndidi


Leicester City faces a difficult task to keep hold of midfielder, Wilfried Ndidi this summer as Premier League side, Everton join the race for his signature, according to the latest reports.

The Nigeria international surprisingly remained at the King Power Stadium following the club’s relegation from the top-flight last season despite a mass exodus of players during the summer, with the likes of James Maddison, Youri Tielemans, and Timothy Castagne, among others, all leaving.

However, the Foxes reaped the benefits of keeping Ndidi around as the midfield general made 36 appearances in all competitions, scoring six goals and recording six assists as the East Midlands outfit won the Championship title, earning promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Nevertheless, Ndidi has garnered interest once more in his signature this summer. TeamTalk released a report on Sunday afternoon claiming that Everton is weighing up a move for the Nigerian if Amadou Onana is sold this summer.

It has been reported over the past week that Leicester City had opened talks with Ndidi over extending his contract at the King Power Stadium, which expires at the end of the month. Losing him for free would be bad for the club’s books.

Nevertheless, there is undoubtedly keen interest in the Nigerian from teams in the Premier League and in Europe so the 27-year-old may be looking for a new challenge and a quick getaway after seven years with the Foxes.
