Arsenal eyeing move versatile French defender

By | March 31, 2021

Eintracht Frankfurt are in contention to qualify for the UEFA Champions League as they are fourth in the standings and four points ahead of fifth placed Borussia Dortmund.

Defender Evan N’Dicka has been one of the key men in his side’s push for the European football and his displays have caught Arsenal’s attention.

This month, the German press reported about the north London club’s interest in the sought-after centre-back and were told the 21-year-old ace will certainly not be cheap.

Eintracht Frankfurt will take on BVB later this weekend and a victory over Die Borussen will put them in a firm position to seal a berth in the continent’s elite club competition next season.

Bild state a win against Edin Terzic’s side on Saturday will make Evan become even more interesting for eclite lubs abroad.

Only the Gunners are mentioned as its claimed the English giants show interest in the Frenchman. The report’s headline asks whether it’ll be ‘Arsenal or Eintracht’ for N’Dicka after this season.

The defender has a contract until June 2023 and the German club remain hopeful of retaining their defender beyond this term.

“He is a clever boy and I think he can assess what he has at Eintracht. He has a regular place with us,” Die Adler’s sporting director Bruno Hubner said.

“Here he enjoys the confidence of the coach. And his contract would also be well remunerated.

“Evan is still very young. Frankfurt is his first stop. He still has time to develop. It would be extremely important for the status.

“Eintracht would automatically be a Champions League club – that stays in people’s heads and would also help Eintracht enormously in the years to come.”
