Arsenal are reportedly ready to make enquiry about Nigerian star Wilfred Ndidi and could make an offer for the Midfielder in January, Sportaccess.com.ng reports.
Ndidi is regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in the premier league and has been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Arsenal in the past.
Reports in a few London tabloids have Arsenal lining up the player among several top several targets for incoming manager Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal have been crying out for solid defenders and defensive midfielders in their starting XI for a while now.
The Gunners have been woeful at the back, and need to sign two new centre-backs and at least one midfielder. Ndidi will certainly help solidify this current Arsenal midfield that has lacked leadership, character, and defensive ability.
Although Arsenal’s defending has been diabolical more often than not, they do need better protection, something that a good defensive midfield can offer.
Ndidi ended last season with most tackles in the league, while he is second behind teammate Ricardo Pereira in the tackles chart this season.
Since his move from Genk in January 2017, the 23-year-old has made 120 appearances for Leicester and has become a key part of the Foxes midfield.
