Arsenal Set To Target This Frankfurt Defender This Summer: Good Fit For Arteta?

Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

According to a report from Express, Arsenal are keen on bringing Evan N’Dicka of Frankfurt to Emirates Stadium at the end of this season. His current contract with the Bundesliga club is set to expire this summer, so he could be a shrewd acquisition for the Gunners going ahead.

N’Dicka’s Run Of Form For Eintracht Frankfurt This Season

The 23-year-old has put in a few dominant displays at the centre of Frankfurt’s backline as he made a brilliant start to this campaign. N’Dicka has not found the back of the net but has picked up one assist over seventeen appearances for the German club this season across various competitions.

The France-born sensation deserves a lot of credit for averaging 5.2 clearances, 0.8 tackles and 1.1 interceptions per game in the Bundesliga. He has been tidy when distributing possession from the back after completing 88.3% of his attempted passes in the German first division (stats via whoscored).


Is N’Dicka A Decent Fit For Arsenal?

N’Dicka can use his strong 1.92m frame to dominate the opposition in the air and can get stuck in with a few hardbound tackles on the defensive end of the field. He has the ability to sense danger quickly and often clears out his lines to remove threats inside his half. He doesn’t mind putting his foot through the ball when needed and excels at playing his way out from the back.

The French defender would be the ideal cover for Gabriel Maghaelas on the left side of the defence. We can expect N’Dicka to bring more bite and steel to Mikel Arteta‘s defensive department and he could help the Gunners challenge for some top honours over the next few seasons.

At 23, N’Dicka is playing at a high level, so Arteta should fancy his chances of getting the best out of the French defender if he decides to join Arsenal this summer. His physical prowess and defensive skillset make him a good option for the Gunners to consider. Thus, Arteta would be wise to engineer a move to get him on board during the summer transfer window.
