Liverpool ready to make £54.3m summer move for Leicester star

Liverpool will “break the bank” for Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, according to a report.

Nigerian outlet The Telegraph claim the Lagos-born Nigerian star is a top target for Jurgen Klopp and the Reds are prepared to pay $75million or £54.3million for the enforcer.

The 21-year-old has been impressive after replacing Ngolo Kante at Leicester and his tough tackling has apparently caught the eye of Klopp.

Ndidi, who arrived at Leicester from Genk in January 2017 for £15million is under contract until 2022, has completed the most tackles per 90 minutes in the top flight than any other player.

Former Nigerian international Etim Esin believes a move to Anfield could happen.

“I can’t remember the last time we had a Nigerian in Liverpool apart from Victor Moses’ brief stint there,” Esin said. “This is going to be a fantastic move for him and I think his transfer fee is likely going to go up because it could happen shortly after the World Cup.”
