Sky Sports are reporting that AC Milan are among the numerous suitors for young France U21 international Evan Ndicka. The 20 year old centre back plays for Eintracht Frankfurt with whom Milan are developing a relationship through the loan swap deal for Rebic and Silva. The centre back is in high demand after his promising displays this season and be cause he is a rare breed as a left footed centre back. He has accumulated 14 starts and 1 game off the bench this season and has demonstrated versatility featuring as both a centre back and left back.

The player could be a major asset for Milan as they could get birds with one stone if the player were to join as a back up LB for Theo Hernandez in the short term and a replacement for Simon Kjaer in the long term. He is being monitored by a number of team such as Liverpool, Arsenal in the Premier League and Sevilla, Valencia in the La Liga. The player fits the Elliot plan and could be a solid addition in the coming transfer window this summer.
