Evan Ndicka has become a hot topic in these parts of England, with a few of the English clubs looking for a defensive revamp in the summer. For a top-quality centre-back at such a cut-price, it is a rarity that Frankfurt’s French-born centre back provides.

At just 22 years of age, Ndicka has been one of the best in the German league throughout the season. He has not only contributed with his tackles and cleansheets at the back, but has also been a revered presence in the air up front with 4 goals and 4 assists in just 31 Bundesliga appearances for Frankfurt.

These stats are heavy duty compared to even some of the midfielders, but his technical abilities in his own box cannot go unnoticed. For a young defensive player, Ndicka offers a varied skill set at his position. He averages almost 2 tackles per game, with another 2 interceptions to go by. No wonder the French-born has 4 assists, seeing that he averages 3 accurate long balls per game. Many could relate this to Van Dijk’s trait of lobbing balls forward for the attackers to pounce upon and score.

Evan Ndicka is surely a giant at the defence for his side, who will be attracting offers from the big European clubs, come Summer.

Most Premier League clubs have been in front of the race to sign the enormous youth International. It was first reported weeks ago by the Chronicle that Liverpool, alongside Monaco and Marseille, have been tipped to monitor Ndicka’s development.

Now that Newcastle United have joined the race, they have been the highly tipped outfit to lure the player to the St. James’ Park in the summer of 2022.

Adding to this, according to a report from Sports Illustrated, Man United have said to be looking in on the potential signing of Evan Ndicka. And this could be the most desired destination for the young player, so far. Manchester United’s Champions League hopes are looking over after their horror show in the 4-0 beating by Brighton. Given how horrendous they have been defensively, there is no doubt that the Red Devils are after the signing of a strong centre-back before the arrival of Erik Ten Hag.

It will be a long battle till the eventual signing. But one, that will be worth the wait, since Evan Ndicka ticks all the boxes for an all-around defender, and he is just 22-year-old.
