Arsenal has officially thrown its hat into the ring alongside Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United in the fierce competition to secure the services of the talented Super Eagles and Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi. The revelation comes from a reliable source close to Ndidi, disclosed exclusively to The Sun, as reported by the Daily Mail.
At the age of 21, Ndidi has made significant strides since his £15 million transfer from Belgian side Genk to Leicester in January 2017. With 36 appearances this season across all competitions, including a noteworthy contribution in Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Brighton – marred by a red card, his second this season – Ndidi has become a sought-after talent.
The Sun’s insider provided insights into the escalating interest, stating, “There has been so much interest in him. He is going to be a top player, and Arsenal have been in contact. 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.”
The competition for Ndidi’s signature is fierce, with Liverpool and Manchester United already expressing strong interest. As Ndidi continues to make his mark, featuring prominently for the Super Eagles in recent friendlies against Poland and Serbia, the race to secure his talents is poised to intensify in the upcoming transfer window. Football enthusiasts worldwide eagerly await the outcome of this three-way battle for one of the most promising midfielders in the game.
