Turkish Giants Galatasaray Renew Interest In Wilfred Ndidi

The Nigerian defensive midfielder’s contract with the Foxes is set to expire at the end of June 2024, likely marking the end of his seven-year stint with Leicester City.

Meanwhile, Ndidi’s former boss, Enzo Maresca, wanted to keep the Nigerian at Leicester City. However, all efforts have proven futile as Maresca has left King Power Stadium to join Chelsea.

Galatasaray has been pursuing several midfield players, with Wilfred Ndidi being their key target for the past two campaigns.

The Super Eagles player, who recently earned promotion to the Premier League with Leicester, has caught the attention of the Turkish giants, who are keen on securing his transfer.

The 27-year-old midfielder, who is renowned for his outstanding defensive abilities, is set to be a free agent after his contract with Leicester City expires in June.

Reports in the Turkish media, according to Sozcu indicate that Galatasaray has extended a three-year contract offer to Ndidi with an option of a further one-year extension.

Trabzonspor and Beşiktaş are among the other interested parties in the Super Lig.

Trabzonspor is aggressively pursuing key signings and are keen on bolstering both their forward line and midfield options, with Kelechi Iheanacho and Paul Onuachu still listed in their priority list towards next season.

The Black Sea Storm are reportedly determined to secure Ndidi’s services and has presented an enticing offer, including a substantial signing bonus.

Since joining Leicester City in 2017, the 27-year-old defensive midfielder has proven to be a dependable member of the team.

However, his contract is set to expire by June 2024. Ndidi seems poised for a potential departure from the King Power Stadium.

The Nigerian international played 36 matches last season, contributing six goals and six assists to the Foxes’ campaign.

In addition to his club exploits, Ndidi has also been a key figure for the Nigerian national team.

He featured prominently in their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign, starting recently against South Africa and the Benin Republic.
