“No player has made more tackles and interceptions combined than Ndidi in the Premier League in 2021 (66), with the defensive midfielder even turning creator of late with three assists in his last six league outings.”

Ndidi will hope to replicate his impressive form when the Eagles take on Benin Republic and Lesotho in this month’s AFCON qualifiers.

  • Don’t worry; there’s time for everything under the sun….

    Your case can be like that of Argen Roben that Chelsea sold for Madrid, at Madrid we thought all has ended but the unthinkable happened when Bayern signed him and the rest is history…

    How about Gnabery that was never considered good enough by Arsenal, he move to Bayern and become established player and even won UCL.

    Time would fail me to talk about SANCHO, POGBA that were never given opporrtunity at their manchester club, other EPL clubs saw them but didn’t know their potentials, by the the time they move else where everything work for their favor.

    All these guys where in EPL but were not seen as good enough; one more stroke caterpulted them to their pick & they become talk of the town.

    EPL big boys may not see u (NDIDI) but i strongly believe one day they would come with milions of pounds to get u but it would be too late bcos at that time u are already in a big club.

    Just calm down & play ur game.
    U will surely get there;


    • White people are underestimating the potential of Ndidi, how on Earth could no big team in England, Italy, Spain, Germany and France roll their carpets for this Jewel. Time will tell.Fire on my guy

    To be clear all the big clubs in England want Ndidi – Man U with Mourinho in charge actually tried to hijack the deal that took him from Belgium to Leicester, but he refused cause he’d given the Leicester people his word; the problem is the amount of money Leicester City will request to do the deal. They’ll demand more money than they got for Maguire, and no one wants to pay GBP 80m for a defensive player not named Virgil Van Dyke.

    Wilfred should have run down his previous deal so as to get his big move, but perhaps he and his agent have a plan no one knows about. One can only hope it’s not a lack of ambition.

    If Ndidi was English or French player he will be worth 150m.
