Nottingham Forest have made an opening bid to Leicester City to sign Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi with two days until the end of the summer transfer window.
According to renowned Italian football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, both Forest and Ndidi have agreed on personal terms for the Super Eagles star who would be hoping to return to the topflight league after Leicester City’s relegation from the Premier League last season.
“Nottingham Forest presented an opening proposal to sign Wilfred Ndidi from Leicester. Personal terms agreed as revealed two days ago, Ndidi wants the move and clubs now starting negotiations,” the Italian football journalist tweeted.
Leicester is open to selling Ndidi, especially considering he has just one year left on his current contract. Ndidi has been a prominent figure expected to depart the Foxes in search of new opportunities after their relegation from the Premier League in 2016.
James Maddison, Harvey Barnes, Youri Tielemans, Caglar Söyüncü, Johnny Evans, Ayoze Pérez, and Timothy Castagne are among the high-profile players that have left the club since they dropped to the second tier of English football.
The 26-year-old scored his first goal of the 2023/24 season in Leicester City’s 2-0 win over Tranmere in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.
Although Liverpool and Bayern Munich have expressed interest in acquiring the Super Eagles midfielder, neither team has submitted a concrete offer to Leicester City for his services. Ndidi is currently valued at €25 million, as indicated by the reputable football transfer website Transfermarkt.
