Former Nigeria star Esin excited by Liverpool talk for Leicester prospect Ndidi

Former Nigeria star Etim Esin is excited by rumours linking Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi with Liverpool.

The young Foxes midfielder is being tracked by the Reds this season.

Esin welcomes the development and told the New Telegraph: “I can't remember the last time we had a Nigerian in Liverpool apart from Victor Moses' brief stint there.

“This is going to be a fantastic move for him and I think his transfer fee is likely going to go up because it could happen shortly after the World Cup.

“Ndidi has been doing well at Leicester; he is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the EPL now and should command that kind of transfer."

"I don't think he will struggle at Liverpool, he is a player made for big club like that and with the role he plays, there is no way he will be sitting on the bench there. I see Ndidi walking straight into that Liverpool's side."

Esin, 51, enjoyed success in Europe with Lokeren, Lierse and Kayserispor.
