Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Niddi, could soon be on his way out of King Power stadium.
Despite Chelsea’s glory, Thomas Tuchel is set to add a few fresh faces to an already star-studded squad with the German reportedly on the lookout for a new midfielder, prompting more links to the Nigerian.
Football.london confirmed this on their website writing:
“Another Premier League midfielder that the Blues should look at is Leicester City’s Wilfred Niddi.
“Ndidi has been a revelation since his move to the Foxes, helping propel them into Europe the last two seasons.
“The 24-year-old is unselfish, often sitting right in front of his defenders to offer them protection and allow his more attacking teammates to roam forward, a quality that Chelsea’s Mason Mount and Kai Havertz would reap the rewards from.
“Ndidi would likely command a large fee, with Transfermarkt valuing him at £45m.
“However, the Nigerian would definitely be worth it considering he ranks higher than the likes of Kante and Rice for average tackles (4.34) and blocks (2.46) per game.

“It would also serve as a huge transfer blow to Leicester – a direct rival for the top-four places, having pushed Chelsea right to the wire this season and last.”
