German club will accept Arsenal’s January offer for their defender

Arsenal has been interested in a move for Evan Ndicka for some time and they could get their man in the January transfer window for a cut price.

The Frenchman plays for Eintracht Frankfurt and he has entered the final year of his current deal with the Bundesliga side.

They have been looking to get him on a new contract for a very long time, but he doesn’t seem interested in extending his stay with them.

The Germans have refused to sell him, believing he will sign a new deal. However, that has not happened.

He could walk free at the end of this season and Frankfurt is now keen to sell him in the next transfer window.

Calciomercato reveals the Germans will listen to offers and names Arsenal as one of the clubs interested in a move for him.

Just Arsenal Opinion

A move for Ndicka would be good for us because it would provide much-needed defensive depth.

We have a good set of defenders now, but an injury to one or two of them could change everything.

Ndicka is still young at 23 and he will give us good value in the long term if this transfer goes through successfully.

But there are other clubs looking to sign him as well and that could be a problem for us.

  1. White, Saliba,Gabriel, Holding and Tomi are all fit and well and capable centre backs.Why do we need another, when it is patently obvious that we need strengthening in other areas?

    1. He is a left footed CB….. To compete with Gabriel maghale, this are the info writers should be including in their articles for more understanding.

      1. This obsession with the need for a left footed centre back does not hold water as ,factually, all but one of the great CB pairings consisted of right footers.The notable exception was the fabulous Milan duo of Nesta and Maldini. In essence, we have enough centre halves.

        1. It might not hold water in your opinion, but Mikel Arteta clearly prefers a left-footed player at LCB if possible.

          I personally think it makes sense offensively.

          I would like to see Tomi tested there though. He’s two-footed, has a good height and plays LCB internationally.

          Anyways I don’t think we’re in the market for another CB, it’s just another media story with very little substance. We have Trusty, who is left-footed, coming back at some point too.

          1. Right after posting I now realize you most likely meant the article didn’t hold water – I agree.

  2. we need cdm to keep challenging for top 4 this season. and an additional complete striker to help Jesus and Nketia.

  3. Yes, of course another CB, is not much needed when trusty comes to decrease magalhaes mistakes and defence will be much stable and solidated but what matters more is backup attacks and partey because when partey is injured arsenal will be much dominated and probably they will be beaten leading to worries for chasing titttle coach ARTETA

  4. Our option in the CB position is good at the moment.

    Salina (very good)
    Holding ( not good enough)
    Gabriel (good but too error prone, need proper competition)
    White( good and still improving)

    In my opinion, Holding needs to be sold and a new better CB is needed to replace/compete with Gabriel.

    Tomi is brilliant at RB and should be used there sooner rather than White…

    Personally I like to see a pairing of
    Terney White Saliba Tomiyasu in a back 4.

  5. That would be a phenomenal purchase if he comes cheap. The Frankfurt wonderkid, now 22 though is clearly an upgrade on Trusty, Holding and Mari. For those who don’t know much about him, do some google search, check his transfermkt profile, CIES value and watch some YouTube videos to have an idea of his playing style. There is a reason for the hype. Besides, we need a dependable deputy for Gabriel, which Holding is not. Tomiyasu needs to know his role and not be turned into a utility player, something that affected Maitland Niles.

    For a left-footed CB, highly rated in France like Saliba, it is worth investing in the purchase if it comes at a cut price.

    Over the summer, we can release Holding who has been a loyal servant for the club and get some fee from the sale of Mari, provided Monza avoids relegation and loan Trusty for another season.

    We don’t have to worry about losing an HG player in Holding as Saliba is HG having being registered with the squad for 3 seasons, even while on loan, as an U21 player.

    Tomiyasu, I believe would fight for his place with Ben White as RB, once Cedric is released next season and Norton-Cuffy will be the long-term successor. Of course, the LB has been locked between Tierney and Zinchenko, with Souza as understudy.

    I expect us to cash in on Tavares in the summer if Marseille are ready to meet the asking price of around €20M.
