Back in March, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal were the main team linked to Eintracht Frankfurt centre-half Evan N’Dicka.
Reports from the German press and media first said the north London side were interested in the ace, who’d been impressing in the country’s top-flight Bundesliga, and a summer transfer was a possibility.
Then other stories wondered if the player’s future would lie at Die Adler or at the Emirates Stadium following the good campaign he was having.
It turns out that the Frenchman ended up staying at Eintracht Frankfurt, and with a great start in the new term, his potential exit is once again a subject in the local press.
Bild claim that Evan has turned out to be his team’s biggest asset for upcoming transfer windows, as the 22-year-old’s current form will only reflect on his market price later.
‘If it were listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, his curve would go up steeply at the moment,’ the publication writes.
The same report takes multiple stats to prove N’Dicka’s improvement.
Bild state that the club did not get offers of above €20 million in the last transfer market, partly because of the COVID-19, but those proposals should now arrive at Eintracht Frankfurt in the future.
Arsenal had already been told they would need to dig deep in their pockets to land the defender, it seems they would need to spend even more next year.
