Leicester City defensive midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is attracting interest from hosts of Premier League giants including Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool

Following a productive first year at the King Power Stadium, the 21-year-old midfielder who has been dubbed as the next N’Golo Kante has been linked with a move to a bigger club than Leicester City.

Ndidi has started all 31 of Leicester’s games for the Foxes in the English top tier.

And his form for the Foxes has led rumours linking him with a switch to Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool

Ndidi, who was sent off in Leicester’s 2-0 win victory over Brighton last night is believed to favours switch to Arsenal.

A source close to the player told The Sun: “There has been so much interest in him. He is going to be a top player and Arsenal have been in contact.

“They want to sign him this summer.

“Arsene Wenger is a manager he admires a lot and his friend Alex Iwobi has told him lots of great things about the club.

“But there is no shortage of offers. Liverpool have shown strong interest and [Manchester] United.”

Arsenal are poised to sign a new defensive midfielder for the next season with Granit Xhaka has failing to impress.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are in the market for Michael Carrick’s replacement as veteran midfielder plans to hand boots on the wall after the end of the season.

Liverpool, on the other hand, are desperate to lure Ndidi at Anfield as a replacement for Emre Can whose current deal set to expire after the season ends.
