Report – Arsenal target will cost more than initially thought

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Eintracht Frankfurt star, Evan N’Dicka as they continue to bolster their team.

He has been on the radar of the Gunners since last summer when they wanted to add defenders to their squad.

They ended up signing Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille, but N’Dicka’s development in Germany is hard to ignore.

Ahead of a summer that we expect the Gunners to change their team again, they have been linked with a move for the 21-year-old.

Reports earlier in the week claimed that Arsenal was monitoring him ahead of the next transfer window and claimed that he would cost them £19million.

However, Frankfurter Neue Presse has disputed that claim and says that the Gunners would need to dig deeper into their pockets before they can land the defender.

It says that the Germans aren’t under pressure to cash in on him and he has a deal with them until 2023.

They even suggested that remaining with them would be best for his career because moving to London and playing fewer games may be detrimental to his current development.

At 6ft 4in, he has the ideal height and he would enjoy the coaching of Mikel Arteta if he moves to Arsenal.

    No thanks. There are better performers at the moment to look at, such as Cristian Romero or Maxence Lacroix.

    Even our own Mavropanos is doing better in Bundesliga than NDicka.

      Agree we already have 2 in-house options and have no need to spend money on a fanciful wishlist.

      Saliba and Mavroporas both young and talented and I believe will serve us better.

      Put any funds towards Bissouma to partner Partey, and another midfielder if we can sell Xhaka. Same goes for Bellerin and Laca.

      Time we move on underperforming players that have been here several years before we move on young talent without giving them an opportunity.

      Time for Edu to step up and say “No” time we try in-house options before window shopping and spending our limited funds.

        👍 Exactly right, Durand, other positions than CB need attention, so not a priority.

    Agree Bissouma looks great fit with Partey .

    Money better spent there

    like some of his measurables, but would rather see what we have in Mavro and Saliba…watched him play again on the weekend against Leipzig, he gave up an easy goal with his lack of discipline with an offside trap then picked up a needless yellow, his 7th of the season…of course, that was only one game, but I’ve seen him on numerous occasions and although he’s definitely a scout-worthy defender, not sure he’s better than our in-house assets, who would be more cost-effective options

    No need oc spending money on cb,we hv mavro and saliba,we can spend on buying a cm eg kessie or bissouma and attacking midifielder i.e pedro Goncalves or otavio on free,and finally edourd frm celtic if we sell laca or nketiah.
