Everton, Lyon, Marseille in tough contention for Ndidi’s signature

2 min read

Everton, Lyon, and Marseille are locked in a battle for the signature of Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi.

All three clubs have taken their interest notches higher, having already tabled offers for the 27-year-old Nigerian international, according to Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna.

As previously reported by Foot Mercato, Lyon were looking to quickly wrap up a deal for Ndidi; however, they have not managed to do so despite submitting an offer.

AS Monaco are also said to be interested in a move for the player, whose contract with Leicester expires at the end of the month, with the Foxes keen to extend his stay at the King Power Stadium.

Despite being plagued by injuries during the 2023/24 Championship season, Ndidi played a key role in Leicester’s promotion to the Premier League after the Foxes topped the table with 97 points, just one point more than second-placed Ipswich Town, who secured the second automatic ticket to the elite division.

Ndidi joined Leicester from Genk in 2016 for £17m. He has scored 11 goals in 224 appearances for the Foxes.
