Eintracht Frankfurt defender Evan Ndicka is reportedly drawing interest from plenty of top European clubs, with Tottenham Hotspur looking set to battle it out with Premier League rivals Newcastle United and Serie A side AS Roma for his signature.

Ndicka has been with the German side since 2018, but with his contract set to expire in the summer of 2023 (Transfermarkt), a number of clubs have been circling the French defender.

Spurs were rumoured to be the front-runners to sign Ndicka in the summer (Foot Mercato) but no move materialised for the 23-year-old at that time.

According to CalcioMercato, Frankfurt could be willing to sell the player on the cheap in January to avoid losing him for nothing next summer, but Fabrizio Romano told CaughtOffside that there’s a ‘very good chance’ Ndicka sees out his contract and leaves for free.

Now, a fresh report from Romagiallorossa.it has spoken of AS Roma’s intentions to sign Ndicka, but claims they will face stiff competition from England in the form of Tottenham and Newcastle.

The report claims Roma are looking to offload Marash Kumbulla in January and would be interested in replacing him with Ndicka to strengthen their defensive options.

Winning the race to sign Ndicka “becomes more complicated” for Roma, though, when you factor in the interest from the Premier League sides. Newcastle’s interest in the young defender is thought to be “strong,” and Antonio Conte may look at Ndicka again, too.

Whether Frankfurt decide to cash in now or let Ndicka leave for free remains to be seen, but the report suggests the lure of the Premier League could be a deciding factor in the player’s final destination.

Evan Ndicka looks like exactly the kind of player Tottenham Hotspur should be trying to sign; he’s young, strong, good on the ball and in the air, and would not cost a lot of money at all. He was pretty impressive when we played against him in the Champions League, and Spurs would be foolish to let any other club steal in and sign him.
