January transfer market is getting more interesting as Spanish giants, Real Madrid, have been linked with a move for Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi.
According to Spanish transfer new site Fichajes.com, Los Blancos are looking to strengthen their holding midfield position this summer and the Nigerian has been tipped as the best option to boost the Zinedine Zidane team.
Brazilian Casemiro, who has been a stalwart across recent years, is in danger of being replaced, according to the report, with Real Madrid boss hoping to strengthen his midfield by all means.
The Spanish giants’ search for a holding midfielder has led them to two players, in particular, with City’s Ndidi as well as Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga being considered.
Ndidi, who has been pivotal to City’s success so far this season, is said to be Zidane’s favourite option.
But he is tied down at the King Power Stadium until 2024 having only penned a new contract in 2018.
Ndidi is still only 23 years of age but he has become one of the most reliable players in his position across the Premier League and even Europe.
Leicester City will be desperate to keep hold of him as they head towards Champions League qualification for next season.
