Forget Mahrez: Keeping £16.2m-rated star would be best summer business for Leicester

Leicester fans here in the Tavern are delighted with their season so far and ever since Claude Puel has taken over. Seeing as they aren’t one of the biggest teams in the league though, their players may warrant interest from a lot of other clubs this summer.

The foxes have now established a team where every position looks strong and can danger any opposition. Their star player this season though is Wilfried NDidi and Leicester simply have to keep hold of the young midfielder to ensure another successful campaign next year.

Ndidi is valued at £16.20 million on Transfermarkt but the way he has been playing has made us fans around the bar think that no matter how much a team is prepared to stump up, he should not be leaving the King Power Stadium. The 21-year-old Nigerian has the most tackles in the league and has been key to stopping attacks and then realising the ball for Leicester to break forward.

Although Riyad Mahrez is often seen as the Foxes’ star man, Ndidi is arguably a more important player and losing him would be a nightmare.

Leicester made the decision to let N’Golo Kante leave for Chelsea and the midfielder has progressed even further to become one of the league’s top midfielders. You would think that the Foxes have learned from their mistake then to ensure that they now keep the Nigerian powerhouse at the club.

Our landlord is hopeful of him staying at the club as the athletic midfielder has already improved his game massively since joining Leicester at the start of 2017. Able to break up enemy attacks before pushing forward and helping hit teams on the counter, he really is becoming an all-round midfielder.

Whether he will stay is another question but Ndidi has real potential and could yet be one of the best midfielders in the league.

How important is this man for Leicester… Thoughts?
