Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Eintracht Frankfurt’s Evan Ndicka for several months now.
In June, Footmercato claimed Spurs were leading the race for the 23-year-old defender.
Although Ndicka stayed put after the summer, Tottenham are apparently still in pursuit of the 6ft 3in powerhouse.
Italian outlet Roma Giallorossa report that Jose Mourinho wants Ndicka to strengthen his backline.
However, Roma are apparently one step behind Spurs in the race for the Frenchman.
Newcastle United and AC Milan are also reportedly eyeing Ndicka.
With the January transfer window on the horizon, Spurs may well be looking to make a move this time.
Tottenham have been decent in the first half of the season, but there is still a lot of work to do.
Antonio Conte could certainly look to bolster his defensive ranks as they’ve let him down too often.
And Ndicka is definitely a good shout out for the Lilywhites.
‘Extremely threatening for goal’
Despite his young age, he already has more than 150 appearances for Frankfurt in all competitions.
Indeed, his efforts helped the club win the Europa League last season.
And this season, Frankfurt are in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Ndicka is incredibly talented, physically imposing and can play at left-back as well as centre-back.
And then there’s his impressive goal tally.
In May, journalist Christopher Michel told Chronicle Live: “For a central defender, Ndicka is extremely threatening.
“He has 10 goals and 9 assists in 135 competitive games. It is enormous.
“His left foot opening is good, he is strong in the head and quick.
“His big weakness is that he sometimes switches off too soon and recognizes dangerous moments too late.
“But Ndicka brings an exciting full package. A great defender!
Even better, Ndicka may be available for a great fee.
Italian outlet Calciomercato.it – via Sport Witness – have looked into the player’s future amid interest from Serie A.
AC Milan and Juventus have reportedly made contact over a deal for Ndicka, whose contract expires next summer.
They have apparently learned that Frankfurt’s initial demand would be €10-12m (£8.7-10.4m).
However, a deal could be agreed at €8-9m (£6.9-7.9m).
