Lyon Targets free agent Super Eagles Star Wilfred Ndidi

The Nigerian midfielder was instrumental as Leicester City promoted back to the Premier League.

Olympique Lyonnais are setting their sights on midfield reinforcements this summer as they eye Super Eagles Star, Wilfred Ndidi, according to Foot Mercato.

The Nigerian midfielder was instrumental as Leicester City got promoted back to the Premier League.

While Nemanja Matić and Maxence Caqueret have solidified Lyon’s midfield in recent months, potential departures necessitate further depth.

Caqueret himself might attract interest, and Corentin Tolisso’s future remains uncertain.

Orel Mangala, a January arrival from Nottingham Forest, hasn’t quite found his footing either for Lyon.

Lyon previously attempted to sign Ndidi last summer, but the deal fell through due to complexities.

This time, however, the timing aligns perfectly as Ndidi’s contract expires this summer, making him a free agent.

However, Lyon face competition from Everton and Real Betis in the race for his signature.
