DONE DEAL: Fabrizio Romano confirms Liverpool target Evan Ndicka to join the Reds as replacement signed
According to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool target Evan N’Dicka will be available for free this summer and is free to join the Reds as a replacement.
Liverpool’s season on Merseyside has been chaotic since they were unable to capitalize on their previous season’s triumphs.
Their final remaining hope is a top four finish as they now rank sixth in the Premier League standings after being eliminated from all three cup tournaments.
With Manchester City, the defending champions, up next at the Etihad, it won’t be an easy feat either.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp will already have an eye on the transfer window, with the German urging the board to invest in the squad this summer.
One of the names thought to be on Liverpool’s shopping list is Eintracht Frankfurt defender N’Dicka, and the Reds boss has received a major boost in his pursuit of the 23-year-old.
Transfer expert Romano has confirmed that Frankfurt have signed Ecuadorian defender William Pacho from Antwerp as a replacement for N’Dicka.
Romano also revealed that N’Dicka was set to leave for free this summer, with the Frenchman’s contract due to expire at the end of the season.
N’Dicka, who has made 35 appearances in all competitions for Frankfurt this season, seems like a no-brainer for Liverpool, as they seek a long-term replacement for Joel Matip.
The 21-year-old is one of the most sought-after defenders in Europe, having shone for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga and Champions League this season.
While he is allegedly viewed as the ideal partner for Virgil van Dijk in the heart of defence.
However, in a major blow for Klopp, Gvardiol bluntly dismissed suggestions he would move this summer.
The Croatian said in a recent interview with Net HR (quotes via Liverpool World): “RB Leipzig is not interested in selling me this summer, there is no point in talking about anything else.
