Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly expressed their interest in signing Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, reports africanfootball.com. According to ESPN, the Nigeria international is top of their transfer wish list, while Ghana’s Thomas Partey remains a backup option.
PSG are reportedly willing to bid around £45-50 million for the 23-year-old, who is contracted to the Foxes until 2024. The French champions signed Senegal international Idrissa Gana Gueye just last year, but are keen on a more dominant force in the defensive midfield position and Ndidi ticks all those boxes.
Ndidi arrived in Leicester from KRC Genk in January 2017 and has established himself as one of the best midfielder’s in the English Premier League over the last couple of years.
He has scored eight goals in 130 appearances for Leicester, including two goals in 29 games in the current campaign. Arsenal and Manchester United are also said to have signalled their interest in signing Ndidi, who has been capped 34 times by the Super Eagles over the last five years.
