Liverpool to battle Manchester United for 23-year-old Bundesliga ace

Liverpool are set to go head-to-head with Manchester United this summer.

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

A report from Football Insider claims that the two Premier League clubs are keen on signing the player after he rejected the offer of an extension from the German club.

Ndicka is out of contract in the summer, meaning both of the aforementioned sides can sign him to a pre-contract agreement already.

Manchester United will likely sell the out of favour Harry Maguire in the summer, whilst Victor Lindelof has proven he is not at the same level as Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane.

Martinez is also currently Man United’s only left-footed stopper, meaning signing Ndicka would provide cover for the Argentine.

As for Liverpool, their defence has been inconsistent to say the least in 2022/23, with Joe Gomez’s form falling off a cliff and Virgil van Dijk not the player he was a few years ago.

Joel Matip is also getting on in years, with the smart move seemingly to sign a new partner for Ibrahima Konate and have them become Liverpool’s no.1 centre-back pairing going forward.

Ndicka is also French, so there would be some form of connection with Konate straight away and as already mentioned, the Frankfurt man would slot easily into the LCB role for either side.
