The 21 year old joined the Foxes in January last year and since has been sublime for them, donning the midfield himself. He was bought as a late replacement for Ngolo Kante and the Nigerian has been impeccable at Leicester midfield and has gained interest among top clubs in the Premier League. He has played every game this season so far, but won’t be playing the next one as he was sent off in Leicester’s most recent Premier League game, a 2-0 win over Brighton.

But the young prospect has made clubs interested for him as there are three reported clubs who are looking to land the midfielder soon. Manchester United and Liverpool were in the race but reports are emerging that Arsenal have joined the race and are the front runners at the moment.

“There has been so much interest in him. He is going to be a top player and Arsenal have been in contact,” a source close to Ndidi told The Sun.

“They want to sign him this summer.”

“Arsene Wenger is a manager he admires a lot and his friend Alex Iwobi has told him lots of great things about the club.”

But he also mentioned that both the Reds and Manchester United are also monitoring his condition, while recently an African journalist in Nigeria named Alpha Balde announced that an agreement was reached by Liverpool and the player himself.

The Merseyside club are said to be looking for him as a replacement of Emre Can, who is set to leave Anfield at the end of the season, and Manchester United are also keen for the young Nigeria International for more solidarity in the midfield.

He said. “I don’t think about this. Any move to a bigger club will take care of itself if I keep doing my thing.”
