In advance of the upcoming campaign, Josko Gvardiol of RB Leipzig and Evan Ndicka of Eintracht Frankfurt are reportedly being monitored by Liverpool. He became famous for leading Leipzig to the DFB Pokal trophy in 2021-22 and assisting Croatia to a historic third-place finish at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
On the other hand, Ndicka’s stellar performances last season have established him as one of the best center backs in the Bundesliga. He helped Frankfurt win the UEFA Europa League in 2021-2022, attracting the attention of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
Mirror claims that Liverpool want to bring in Gvardiol and Ndicka to improve their defense this summer. Jurgen Klopp’s team is interested in selling Joel Matip and Joe Gomez to make room for them and build a team that will be ready to compete for trophies in the coming season.
Compared to the Dinamo Zagreb youth product, it is thought that Ndicka, who is in the final three months of his contract, is a better option.. However, the Frenchman’s availability on a free transfer means that Liverpool will face fierce competition from Arsenal, Barcelona, and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
In total, the former AJ Auxerre player has made 174 appearances for Frankfurt in all competitions, scoring 11 goals and providing 10 assists.Gvardiol, on the other hand, is being pursued by other European teams like Manchester City, Chelsea, and Real Madrid, and his value is approximately £88 million.In 78 Leipzig games, Gvardiol has scored five goals and provided three assists. His contract at the Red Bull Arena runs through June 2027.
Alan Hutton, a former Tottenham Hotspur player, told Football Insider that Liverpool should try to team up with Josko Gvardiol and Virgil van Dijk because of the latter’s many talents.He is an excellent player, in my opinion. We’re talking about a lot of money, passing, and left-handedness. He has physical attributes and is also a good size.
I think a lot of his fans would be very pleased if he teams up with a healthy Virgil van Dijk.Hutton went on to urge Liverpool to sign Gvardiol this summer:It will cost a lot, and we will soon find out whether they are willing to spend that much on a center half.
He is worth more than £80 million. Be that as it may, I think it is definitely justified.It is crazy to think that he is playing at that level at such a young age and taking everything in stride. He is only 21 years old.
