Premier League clubs, Liverpool and Arsenal are said to be placing close observations on France Under-21 defender Evan Ndicka.
The youngster has played fifteen games for the German Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt league in the current season.
Both the European Champions and the London side have been tracking the player before the Coronavirus forced suspension of club football all over Europe.
However, they have Spanish La Liga teams and Italian clubs also for competition in the race to sign the player.
Valencia and Sevilla are the Spanish club sides interested in the signing of the youngster while AC Milan and Inter Milan want to bring the Frenchman to Italy.
Ndicka makes use of his left foot in the center back position, something which is a quality that is very difficult to find in defenders recently.
Nevertheless, the Gunners were able to sign Pablo Mari during the January transfer window from Brazilian Clubside, Flamenco, albeit on a loan even though there is a chance to make a move permanent in the summer transfer window.
Jurgen Klopp’s team, on the other hand, are searching the transfer market in search for a defender as Dejan Lovren remains unsettled and uncertain for a future at the Anfield.
Also, the summer transfer window may likely not be opened by June 18 as the current season remains uncertain for a restart for Europe’s biggest competition and leagues due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
This has left teams with the possibility that players may be out of a contract before or by the time the season restarts with FIFA reviewing player registrations.
Irrespective, clubs have not stopped their search for potential targets for their targets despite the inability to see them play in matches.
The 20-year-old can also play in the left black position after he was deployed there in Europa League games, especially the last 32 win over Austrian RB Salzburg and the last 16 loss to Basel.
