Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing Eintracht Frankfurt defender and Liverpool Evan Ndicka at the end of the season.

Manchester City will face competition from rivals Liverpool in the race to sign Evan Ndicka. A report from 90min claims that the two Premier League clubs have already been in touch with the 23-year-old French defender’s representatives regarding a summer move.

Ndicka has been an important player for Eintracht Frankfurt, and the Bundesliga club will not want to lose him anytime soon. But they are powerless to stop him from leaving because of his contract situation. The defender’s contract expires in the coming months, and he will look to move on as a free agent.

The opportunity to play for a Premier League club is likely to be a tempting proposition for him and it will be interesting to see where he ends up. He has been linked with Arsenal as well.

Liverpool are in desperate need of defensive reinforcements, and Ndicka could prove to be an upgrade on players like Joe Gomez and Joel Matip. Both players have shown considerable decline this season. In addition, they have been quite injury prone as well.

Ndicka can play in a back three as well as a back four and his tactical facility could be very useful for Jurgen Klopp. Furthermore the 23-year-old is still quite young and he is likely to improve further. He could prove to be a quality long-term acquisition for the Reds.

Liverpool pulled off for a similar signing with Joel Matip a few seasons ago. Since then, the former Schalke defender has been a key player for the club over the last few seasons. Ndicka could make a similar impact at Anfield.

Meanwhile, Manchester City could lose Aymeric Laporte, who has been linked with a move away from the club. The 23-year-old Frenchman could be the ideal replacement for Laporte next season.

Both clubs would represent an excellent step up in the player’s career and it will be interesting to see what the player decides. Manchester City are likely to be able to offer him Champions League football. But Liverpool are in real danger of missing out on a top four finish. That could give the Premier League champions an edge in the transfer race.
