#TransferNews: Liverpool Ready To Break Bank For Wilfred Ndidi
Liverpool are ready to “break the bank” for Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi.
The New Telegraph reports that Jurgen Klopp is willing to sanction a £54.3million bid for the Leicester City enforcer.
The 21-year-old has been impressive since he was brought in to replace N’Golo Kante at the King Power Stadium.
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.”
