The left-footed centre-back who has developed into one of the best young defenders in the world has his contract expiring in the summer of 2023 and Eintracht Frankfurt would want to cash in on the player this summer to avoid losing him on a free transfer. Hence, Arsenal could ressurect their interest once again and reports even say they have once been offered the chance of signing N’Dicka for as low as €20 million in the past.

The player has however been warned against leaving the German Bundesliga for the English Premier League by Jan-Age Fjortoft.

“Apart from strikers like Haaland or Mbappé, it is above all centre-backs who are in demand in the next transfer period,” he told BILD as quoted by Sport Witness.

“Chelsea’s Rüdiger and Christensen are on the market, and in Germany internationals like Ginter and Süle. Freiburg’s Schlotterbeck probably too. So there is movement coming in.

“Of course, with every defender who can head and is tall, people say: he’s one for England… But there are big differences in the Premier League.

“If you play at Burnley, for example, you are almost always deep at the back for 90 minutes and are constantly fighting two-on-one. It’s different to the top clubs, where you have to defend much higher up and, above all, be quick.

“I would like him to stay. Evan is a perfect fit for Eintracht.”
