Spanish giants Real Madrid have been linked with a move for Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi.
According to Spanish transfer new site Fichajes.com, Los Blancos are looking to strengthen their holding midfield position this summer.
Brazilian Casemiro, who has been a stalwart across recent years, is in danger of being replaced, according to the report, with Real boss Zinedine Zidane hoping to strengthen his midfield.
Real’s search for a holding midfielder has led them to two players, in particular, the report claims, with Leicester City midfielder Ndidi as well as Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga being considered.
The Nigerian midfielder, who has been pivotal to Brendan Rodger’s success at City so far this season, is said to be Zidane’s favourite options.
But Ndidi is tied down at the King Power Stadium until 2024 having only entered a new contract in 2018.
The 23-year-old Nigeria has become one of the most reliable players in his position across the Premier League and even Europe.
Real Madrid would be quite the carrot for Wilfred Ndidi.
