Liverpool eyeing Evan Ndicka on free transfer with Eintracht Frankfurt defender set to leave Germany in summer
- Ndicka looks set to leave Frankfurt
- Liverpool interested in the defender
- PSG & Barca are also in the race
WHAT HAPPENED? The Frenchman reportedly turned down a final extension offer from the Bundesliga outfit, which has alerted a number of top European clubs. According to the Mirror, Liverpool are looking to steal a march on the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona in the race for Ndicka. The Reds are closely monitoring the development of the towering centre-back, who won the Europa League last season and also impressed in the Champions League this season before Eintracht's round of 16 loss to Napoli.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Reds are looking to overhaul their squad in the summer, and a new centre-back is on their wishlist along with midfield reinforcements. Ndicka is a versatile left-footed defender who can slot in as a left-back if required, and has also occasionally featured as a holding midfielder. The Mirror states that his free agency is an attractive proposition for both Liverpool and Barcelona, with the two clubs currently looking for a number of new players while operating on a limited budget.
AND WHAT'S MORE: Ndicka, however, wants guaranteed first-team action, and with Ibrahima Konate shining alongside Virgil van Dijk in the Liverpool team, it might be tough for Jurgen Klopp to convince him to move to Anfield.
