Arsenal and Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on Eintracht Frankfurt defender Evan Ndicka.

The France Under-21 centre-back has played 15 Bundesliga games for the club this season, being deployed at centre-back and left-back for Adi Hutter’s side.

According to Sky Sports News, the talented defender is being monitored by both Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp, while La Liga outfits Valencia and Sevilla and AC Milan and Inter Milan are reportedly interested in his services.

The report also suggests that both Premier League giants could be in the market for defensive reinforcements, with the future of the Merseyside Reds Dejan Lovren still up in the air.

Meanwhile, the North London club have the option to secure the services of Pablo Mari on a permanent deal from Brazilian club Flamengo this summer, although it stays to be seen when the transfer window will be re-opened amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Ndicka has played 49 games for Frankfurt since joining from Auxerre back in 2018 and has been tipped to have a bright future as Eintracht Frankfurt value him around at £40m.

Arsenal and Liverpool both are interested to strengthen their defensive end this summer and alongside with Ndicka another Bundesliga defender Upamecano has been rumoured with a switch to PL giants.
