Arsenal reportedly have an agreement in place to sign Evan Ndicka on a free transfer in the next summer transfer window. The defender currently plays for the Bundesliga team Eintracht Frankfurt.
However, his contract is going to end in the next summer transfer window. Hence, the defender has decided to join the Gunners on a pre-agreement for a future transfer.
ARSENAL AND EVAN NDICKA TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal has an agreement to sign Eintracht Frankfurt defender Evan Ndicka on a free transfer. The report also claims that the agreement will be announced in the January transfer window. However, the defender will start playing for the Gunners in the next season. This is because it is a pre-agreement to sign him on a free transfer. Hence, the defender will honor his existing contract with Frankfurt till the end of the season.
The Bundesliga giants tried to convince him to sign a contract extension. However, it looks like Arsenal have convinced him to join their project from the next season. Hence, the Gunners will try to complete his free transfer for next season in this January. It is because out-of-contract players from next season can accept contract offers from foreign leagues in January to sign him on a free transfer next season. The report also claims that Mikel Arteta has also sanctioned the transfer.
THIS POTENTIAL TRANSFER MIGHT END THE CAREER OF ROB HOLDING AT THE CLUB
The potential transfer is good news for all the Gunners fans. However, for Rob Holding, this is going to be a piece of bad news. The Evan Ndicka transfer will make him the fourth-choice center-back of the club. Hence, there are chances that Arsenal will start accepting offers for the England defender. In the last 2 to 3 seasons, he has given his best for the Gunners. However, he has not got enough game time to show his capabilities. Hence, leaving the club is the best option for him even in the January transfer window.
This is because Arsenal looks quite ambitious at the moment regarding the potential transfer of Evan Ndicka. It is because they have beaten the competition of a number of teams for his signature. AS Roma, Tottenham, and Newcastle United were also interested in a potential deal. However, the French defender wants to join the Gunners the next season. Therefore, it looks like the Gunners are continuing to enhance their transfer strategy of signing young and experienced players.
Evan Ndicka has already tasted success by winning Europa League last season with Eintracht Frankfurt. Hence, Arsenal are potentially getting a transfer that helps the club win big games. However, Evan Ndicka will have to compete hard for the starting spot on the team. He will have to fight with Ben White, William Saliba, and Gabriel Magalhaes for a starting spot in the team.
