Arsenal have allegedly agreed a deal to sign West Ham United target Evan Ndicka on a free transfer in the summer.
That’s according to Il Romanista who claim that the 23-year-old is Arsenal bound, and that’s terrible news for the Hammers.
The Eintracht Frankfurt defender would be an incredible addition for the Hammers.
It seems as though that dream is over before it started for West Ham though, with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta apparently having already wrapped up a deal to bring him to the Emirates.
Evan Ndicka has agreed to join Arsenal in the summerIl Romanista claims that the French centre-back has already agreed terms with Arsenal over a move to the Emirates on a free transfer in the summer of 2023.
Missing out on Ndicka will be a huge shame for West Ham, he literally would have been the perfect addition to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium.
The Frenchman is a truly elite defender, make no mistake about that.In 32 Bundesliga games for Eintracht Frankfurt last season, Ndicka bagged four goals and four assists. During those appearances, he averaged 1.9 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 4.1 clearances per game (Who Scored).
The 23-year-old also won 3.8 aerial duels per match and recorded a completion rate of 83.3% from 56.9 attempted passes per game (Who Scored).
Standing at 6ft 4in tall, he is totally dominant in the air. The centre-back seems to be tailor made for Premier League football.
He has been described as an ‘integral’ player for Frankfurt this season by The Mastermind Site.I would absolutely love to see him at the London Stadium.
With Arsenal reportedly having agreed a deal to sign Ndicka though, there is no chance of that happening now.
