Liverpool are looking to bolster their squad for next season, and reports suggest they have set their sights on Evan Ndicka. The 23-year-old Bosman prospect currently plays for Eintracht Frankfurt, where he has been a standout performer in both the Europa and Champions Leagues.
Ndicka’s contract with Frankfurt is set to expire at the end of the season, and despite being offered a new deal, he has turned it down, making him an attractive target for several top European clubs, including Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.
The 6ft 3in centre-half has been on Liverpool’s radar since he burst onto the scene as a teenager with Auxerre and impressed at the France youth levels. He has been a consistent performer for Frankfurt and currently leads the Bundesliga stats for defensive blocks this season.
Liverpool’s interest in Ndicka is understandable, as he fits the profile of the type of player they are looking for. He is available on a free transfer, and his versatility is an added bonus, as he can play as a left-sided defender or even in a holding midfield role.
Jurgen Klopp has made no secret of his desire to rebuild his squad in the summer, and a new centre-half is one of his top priorities, along with reinforcements in midfield. Ndicka would be a shrewd acquisition for Liverpool, and his arrival would add strength and depth to their defence.

The Frenchman’s experience in European competition would also be a valuable asset to Liverpool, who have struggled in that department this season. His performances in both the Europa and Champions Leagues have demonstrated his ability to perform at the highest level, and Liverpool will be hoping that he can replicate that form if he joins the club.
