Tottenham Hotspur are in the picture to sign Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi.

The midfielder has a deal expiring in 2024 and the possibility of securing his services for free next summer has attracted Barcelona.

According to Punch Sports Extra, the 26-year-old could make a ‘huge switch’ away from Leicester next summer, and the La Liga side will have to battle it out with Tottenham for his signature.

The Nigeria international was linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium in the last window, following the Foxes’ relegation. He can walk away for free after this season, if Leicester fail to tie him down to a new deal.

It’s said the possibility of the player renewing will depend on Enzo Maresca’s side returning to the top flight. Leicester are currently leading the Championship table and are eight ahead of third placed Leeds United.

Spurs seem to have already started work to try to sign Ndidi next summer. Punch Sports Extra make no mention of whether Tottenham would still battle it out if he were to sign a new deal at Leicester.

Ndidi has three goals and four assists from 15 games this season.
