Agents could scupper Arsenal’s move for top defender

Arsenal is one of the clubs interested in a move for Evan Ndicka as he nears the end of his contract at Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Frenchman has been one of the finest young defenders on the continent and has developed well at his present club.

He now believes he must take the step up and Frankfurt has given up on keeping the player, which means he can speak to other clubs in this transfer window.

Arsenal is interested and he seems like a steal if the Gunners add him to their squad as a free agent, but that will be easier said than done. 

A report on Frankfurter Rundschau reveals his entourage has been shopping him around, but they could price him out of a move to a big club.

It claims they want an overall package of 50m euros for a five-year deal, including 7m euros per season in wages. This demand could make clubs turn off their interest.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Ndicka is a fine defender, but he is not worth signing for all that money, especially if he becomes a free agent.

His entourage seems to be looking for an equivalent of his market value for themselves, which is pure greed because he has not even played for one of Europe’s top clubs yet.

  1. Timing is everything, why do I get the feeling the timing is right for a fresh round of talking with the Ukrainian for Mudryk.

    With the kid scheduled to join up with team mates in Turkey tomorrow to start training and his spirit low and his bosses egos bruised , this could be a face saving moment where each party step back and agree a deal of £66 mil, both sides could leave a winner.

  2. It’s crazy isn’t it? Players running down their contracts and charging big signing-on fees which is essentially the signing profit of clubs. And fans are angry with club owners while lapping up to players.

  3. Some worldwide rules around agent fees are needed.

    £50m agent fee for a player who’s out of contract is ludicrous, I hope no club pays it. The player should change agent – these guys are probably not experienced in finance, if they were then they’d realise that a club pays an amount for the player’s services and they get to keep whatever is left after all the sharks have had a nibble. So if an agent takes £50m, that’s £50m the player could have had, one way or another.

      1. DK The article is also wrong or is it not by saying the package of 50M includes a 5 year contract of 7m in wages per year. this leaves us with 15m as the cost of the player.

        Numbers to many writers is always a nightmare.
