The Premier League champion Manchester City reportedly contacted Evan Ndicka’s agents about their client, the Eintracht Frankfurt star
As Pep Guardiola begins the final two years of his extended Manchester City contract, officials at the Etihad Stadium are preparing for what is anticipated to be a very busy transfer market, both in terms of arrivals and departures.
Spanish international Aymeric Laporte, who has struggled for playing time for the whole of the current season, is one name who may find themselves in discussion for a City escape. Laporte has been a substitute in crucial matches this season as Pep Guardiola appears to prefer Manuel Akanji and Ruben Dias as his primary central defensive pairing.
If the former Athletic Bilbao player leaves Manchester City, it is likely that the management of the Etihad Stadium would look for a comparable replacement during the forthcoming summer transfer window. As a result, according to information from 90Min, Manchester City has now requested that Evan Ndicka’s representation be notified of his plans prior to his departure from Eintracht Frankfurt this summer.
According to Sean Walsh and Graeme Bailey, the 23-year-old’s contract is scheduled to expire at the conclusion of this season, making him free to join another club without paying a transfer fee. As a result, Manchester City and Liverpool have both expressed interest in the Frenchman. The skills of Josko Gvardiol, an exceptional Croatian centre-back who played in RB Leipzig’s 8-1 overall loss to Pep Guardiola’s team in the UEFA Champions League last-16, are also of interest to City.
The midfielder Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund is the subject of a widely reported trade fight involving the Premier League winners Liverpool and Real Madrid, and City are expected to want to add to their squad in this area. In the event that players like Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan depart the Etihad Stadium in the summer, the England international is more likely to be in Manchester City’s sights.
