European giants FC Barcelona are reportedly interested in Super Eagles’ and Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, with suggestions that a potential summer move could be on the cards, AOIFootball.com can report.
Ndidi by statistics is the best ball-winning midfielder currently in Europe and has been linked with a move away from the former EPL champions after a series of stellar performances for the Foxes this season.
Last week, Leicester City manager Claude Puel insisted that speculations about the player’s future only shows how good both the player and the club have been in recent months.
However, statistics show that Ndidi might just be the middleman to do the dirty job for the runaway LaLiga champions with Sergio Busquets, Rakitic and Paulinho already entering their 30s.
Ndidi is the best tackler in England and the second best in Europe with a massive 126 tackles in the league averaging 4.2 per game.
The Eagles’ midfielder also knows how to play with the ball, averaging 75% pass accuracy per game, something that suits the Barcelona pattern perfectly.
