FC Barcelona are one of many clubs interested in the services of Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi, per a new report. He will be out of contract soon and it is expected he will not renew his deal.

Sevilla, Juventus, and several Premier League clubs have sounded him out but Barcelona thinks they can convince him to join if they decide to commit to him.

The Catalans had made advances towards signing him in the past, and it’s understood he was receptive to the idea. Today, it is said he wants to leave England and that would also make it likelier he’d land in Catalonia.

Ndidi’s name is being linked at a time when a lot of long-standing targets for the defensive midfielder position are drifting further from Barcelona. The potential signings of Guido Rodríguez, Joshua Kimmich, and Martín Zubimendi are said to be losing steam. The Catalans have to look for value in the transfer market for the position.
