The Eintracht Frankfurt centre-back is at the end of his contract and is very much on the radar of Barça's sporting directors

FC Barcelona are looking to bring in a new left-footed centre-back to reinforce Xavi's side for next season. They are in the market for players who wouldn't cost a huge fee.

Iñigo Martínez, who is nearing the end of his contract with Athletic Club, Manchester City's Aymeric Laporte, and Ndicka from Eintracht Frankfurt are the players that are being currently looked at.

The French centre-back's contract expires on 30 June and the Catalan giants' sporting directors are keen on him. A few weeks ago, SPORT1 in Germany reported that Barça had reached a verbal agreement with the defender to sign him from 1st July.

They emphasized that the player does not want to renew as he did not fancy playing in the Bundesliga any more. Even though he will be a free agent, Barça will have to fight with all the other suitors Ndicka has been attracting. And the Catalan giants are clear that they do not intend to enter into a bidding war to see who can offer him the best contract. He has offers from teams in Italy and England, as well as PSG.

He would walk right into the team

The 23-year-old French centre-back has been excelling at Eintracht Frankfurt and ticks all the boxes for Barça: a left-sided centre-back, cheap, young and with good ball control. He is also a player who is used to playing on the left side of a three-man defence as well as in a back four.
