French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain is interested in signing Super Eagles and Leicester star Wilfred Ndidi as they search for a new central midfielder in the summer transfer window.
Ndidi, 23, was in fine form for Champions League-chasing Leicester before the break due to the coronavirus outbreak and became the subject of interest from some top European clubs.
Paris Saint-Germain is interested in signing Leicester’s Wilfred Ndidi as they search for a new central midfielder in the summer transfer window and reports suggest PSG, through their sporting director Leonardo, is plotting an offer this summer.
The Nigeria international arrived at Leicester in 2017 from Genk for £15 million and still has another four years left on his contract.
Ndidi is currently valued is at around £45 million to £50 million (about N25 million).
Despite recently bringing in two central midfielders in Idrissa Gueye last summer for £30 million from Everton and Leandro Paredes the previous January for £36 million from Zenit, the Parisians still feel they need a strong and aggressive holding midfielder, which neither the Senegal nor Argentina internationals are struggling to cope.
Ndidi meets all the requirement and Leonardo could soon accelerate their interest with an offer.
Interestingly, Ndidi is not the only midfielder on PSG wish-list.
Partey, 26, who is also having a very good season, is also another name on their shortlist.
The Ghana international’s buy-out clause is £43.7 million.
Leonardo is also a big fan of Bakayoko.
The Frenchman, 25, had a revival at Monaco this season and still belongs to Chelsea, where he endured a difficult spell before being loaned to Milan and then back the Ligue 1 side.
