Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krosche has revealed that the Bundesliga club have offered new contracts to Evan Ndicka and Daichi Kamada, who have both been linked with moves to Tottenham.
The contracts of both Ndicka and Kamada run out at the end of the season and Antonio Conte got to watch both players first-hand this season, with the centre-back and attacking midfielder showing their class in the Champions League clashes against Spurs.
Frankfurter Rundschau were the latest to report on the North London club’s interest in Ndicka, with the publication claiming a few days ago that the Lilywhites are one of several clubs who are willing to offer the Frenchman a sizeable contract at the end of the season.
The report asserted that the centre-back’s representatives are eyeing a free transfer next summer so their client could get a huge salary hike and they would be in line for a substantial bonus.
Meanwhile, Bild reported last week that Tottenham were one of a number of clubs eyeing Kamada, stating that Conte’s men would be prepared to double the salary that the Japanese international currently earns at Deutsche Bank Park.
Krosche has now revealed that Frankfurt have put contracts on the table for both players and are awaiting their response.
When asked about the futures of Ndicka and Kamada, the German club’s sporting director told Kicker: “We really want to keep them, have made them offers and explained their role at Eintracht in the future.
“Now, we have to wait and see. We are convinced that it would be best for them to stay with Eintracht.”

Based on the various reports over the last couple of months, it seems like Ndicka might be behind Alessandro Bastoni and Josko Gvardoli in Antonio Conte’s wishlist for a left centre-back next summer.
Plenty of clubs from across Europe will likely explore a deal for the Frenchman as well as for Kamada if either of them does not put pen to paper on new deals. Perhaps, Frankfurt will also try their best to cash in on either player this month if they refuse to sign on the dotted line.
