According to Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool are interested in signing Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Evan Ndicka, who is set to become a free agent at the end of the season (via Sport Witness)
The France U21 international, who has recently been linked with a move to Barcelona, has already informed Frankfurt that he will not be staying at Deutsche Bank Park past the summer.
According to the report, the Camp Nou club is unwilling to “enter into a battle” for the central defender’s signature, with Inter Milan, AC Milan, Juventus, and PSG also keeping an eye on the situation.
Liverpool’s main priority for next season is to strengthen their midfield, but if the opportunity to sign a young but talented defender presents itself, Jurgen Klopp may be interested.
As the summer transfer window approaches, the Merseysiders have also been linked with a move for Torino defender Per Schuurs.
Ndicka, on the other hand, is a left-footed central defender who would be able to learn from compatriot Ibou Konate as well as play alongside Virgil van Dijk, who has emerged as the best central defender in the world since joining Klopp’s side in 2018.
It’ll be interesting to see what kind of business we end up doing at the end of the campaign, and this could be one to keep an eye on.
