Liverpool FC are reportedly interested in signing Evan Ndicka, the young French center back currently plying his trade at Eintracht Frankfurt. The 23-year-old defender has impressed scouts from Liverpool and other top European clubs, and is set to become a free agent in the summer after turning down a new contract offer from Eintracht.
Ndicka has been on Liverpool’s radar for a while, with the Reds scouting him since his days at Auxerre and at the France youth levels. He has emerged as one of the most promising young defenders in Europe, and his performances this season have only cemented his reputation as a rising star.
At 6ft 3in, Ndicka is a commanding presence in defense, and he leads the Bundesliga stats for defensive blocks this season. He is also versatile, capable of playing as a left-sided defender or even in a holding midfield role. This versatility would be a huge asset to Liverpool, who have struggled with injuries and a lack of depth in their defense this season.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made no secret of his desire to strengthen his squad in the summer, and a new center back is one of his top priorities. Ndicka would be an ideal fit for Liverpool’s style of play, as he is comfortable on the ball and has a good passing range. He could also provide cover at left back, where Liverpool have been hit by injuries this season.
However, Liverpool are not the only club interested in Ndicka. Arsenal and Tottenham are also said to be monitoring his situation, and there could be a bidding war for his services in the summer. It remains to be seen whether Liverpool will be able to secure his signature, but he would be a valuable addition to their squad if they do.

Liverpool are also reportedly looking to strengthen their midfield this summer, with several names being linked with a move to Anfield. However, their priority will be to shore up their defense, and Ndicka would be a great start. If they can land him on a free transfer, it would be a smart move by the Reds, and could help them to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title next season.
