Arsenal launching swap bid for Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi

Arsenal are launching a bid for Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi.

Leicestershire Live says new Gunners boss Mikel Arteta knows one of his most pressing priorities is to make Arsenal much tougher to beat, with serious questions having been raised over the defence for some time.

Defensive midfielder Ndidi could help give Arsenal's back four some protection, having done so for a Leicester team which has conceded just 14 goals this season - the joint lowest amount in the Premier League along with Liverpool .

And the Gunners are set to offer Granit Xhaka plus £40million as they bid to sign Nigeria international Ndidi.

Ndidi has been a key figure as the Foxes have shot up to second place in the Premier League under manager Brendan Rodgers this season.
