Liverpool FC is keen on recruiting Super Eagles defensive midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi in the summer according to reports in the New Telegraph.
Liverpool have been without a natural defensive midfielder since the departure of Lucas Leiva, as the Brazilian left for Lazio at the end of the 2016/17 season.
However, according to reports from New Telegraph, Liverpool Football Club is set to finally bring in a defensive midfielder as they court Leicester City’s Ndidi.
Since joining the Foxes from Genk in 2016, the 21-year-old has adapted quickly to life in the Premier League, becoming one of Leicester’s standout performers.
Having been drafted into the Leicester side to replace a Chelsea-bound N’Golo Kante, Ndidi has performed admirably, completing more tackles per 90 minutes than any other player in the top flight so far this season.
Such strong performances have caught the eye of many big clubs, with Liverpool reportedly very keen on securing the services of the young Nigerian.
With RB Leipzig’s Naby Keita already set to arrive at Anfield at the end of the season, and Emre Can is poised to leave the club upon the expiry of his current contract, Ndidi could prove to be a valuable addition to a Liverpool side that have lacked discipline in midfield at times this season.
