Chelsea fans can’t wait to see Wilfred Ndidi sign for the club as the Leicester City midfielder emerged transfer target for Frank Lampard.
According to reports in Spain yesterday, the Nigerian is on the transfer shortlist of the Blues, while La Liga giants Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest.
Manchester United and Arsenal have been heavily linked with Ndidi, who has become a standout performer at the King Power Stadium.
The Nigerian international, who is valued at £40 million according to reports, has been identified as a possible replacement for N’Golo Kante who made a £35m transfer to the Stamford Bridge side in 2016.
Ndidi has become one of Brendan Rodgers’ key men as City eye a return to the Champions League.
The Super Eagles midfielder signed for City from Belgian side Genk in 2017 and has gone from strength-to-strength in English football.
That’s why Chelsea fans are loving the latest reports.
One said: “Ndidi is everything Chelsea are missing in midfield. He’s an aggressor, good in the air and can win the ball at will. Would be an impressive signing.”
“Great signing, Kante isn’t getting younger, imagine Ndidi, RLC and Kovacic – in my opinion that would be the best midfield in the league and are all a good age,” added another.
“He’d be class,” a third said.
“If this can be pulled off, it’d be a no-brainer,” said another.
Added a fourth: “Probably not true but would be a class signing if it were. He’s the best defensive midfielder in the League in my opinion and would improve our team so, so much.”
“If it’s true, he would surely add depth to the squad,” said a fifth. “Class signing.”
“Get in!!! I wanted him for a long time man,” another added.
“This would be amazing,” another Chelsea fan said.
