Report: Liverpool weighing up bid for Wilfred Ndidi

Another day sees yet another Defensive midfielder linked to the club with Wilfred Ndidi from Leicester now added to the list.


From Manu Kone in the early part of the window to Cheick Doucoure in more recent times, the Liverpool transfer team have scoured the market looking for the type of player that perfectly fits their profile.


We saw hopes raised when seemingly out of nowhere it was thought Moises Caicedo could be heading to the club, but he eventually made his way to Chelsea as did Romeo Lavia, a player that was coveted for a number of months but it was all to no avail.


Waturu Endo was certainly not a name that was speculated to any extent, but it was the type of deal that Liverpool have made an art form of in the modern era, without a great deal of fuss and most certainly under the radar.


And while Endo will be more than serviceable in the role, that has not stopped the talk that the club are looking for a younger player to fill the holding midfield role.




The Mirror (per The Independent) believe that Ndidi fits that mould and is a player that Klopp has shown previous interest in back in 2018.


The Nigerian who is in his eighth season with the Foxes has made 243 appearances during that time and has been a catalyst to their strong start in the Championship this season.


The contract of the 26 year-old expires next June and therefore the time for Leicester to cash in on him is now with Nottingham Forest also believed to very keen on signing him.


Conversely, losing a senior member of their squad so close to the deadline would leave them precious little time to find a replacement.


Any hope that Liverpool had of signing Doucoure have been extinguished by the price tag that the South London club have put on the Mali international, believed to be £70 million.


And stop if you have heard this one before, but as Liverpool look to add to their squad in the remaining few days of the summer window, it is believed that Nat Phillips has been given the green light to leave the club either on a temporary or permanent basis.


With Jarell Quansah certainly not looking out of place in his debut cameo performance against Newcastle on Sunday, it seems that Phillips is well and truly on the periphery.

Makes no sense whatsoever. Had we not signed Endo then maybe you could make a case for signing a prem experienced dm like him but even then the time to sign Ndidi was 3 years ago. Reckon it’s agent talk.

It's the weakest of links, Delaney is basically just speculating that Liverpool need a midfielder, Ndidi is a midfielder, Liverpool might sign Ndidi.


Even his report says MAY consider a move, not that we're interested, not that we're considering it, not that we may bid  just that as Ndidi is expected to move this summer we might be interested.
