It has been reported that an important member from the entourage of Evan N’Dicka could play a crucial role to push Arsenal ahead of Liverpool in the race to get the defender from Frankfurt. The 20-year-old footballer from France plays for his nation at the Under-21 level and has reached a height of prominence this season in Bundesliga. He appeared in 25 matches in all the competitions. He has been able to catch the eye of both Arsenal and Liverpool by some of his performances, but the Reds are much ahead of their rivals in the Premier League in the race to make a safe deal with the player as they need to find a replacement of Dejan Lovren.
Meanwhile, it is expected that Arsenal will make the loan deal with Pablo Mari permanent. They can also rely upon William Saliba from the next season. The Gunners have signed the 19-year-old footballer from St Etienne the previous summer before they send him back to Ligue 1 for this term. According to some reports, the presence of Aboubacar Traore who is working with N’Dicka could be essential to help the broker of Arsenal a deal for taking the center-back player. Currently, Evan N’Dicka’s rate is £20 million.
It is also reported that Aboubacar Traore played an important role to get Nicholas Pepe moved to the Emirates during the last summer transfer window over the line. This could be an advantage for the Gunners hoping for the transfer. Claims have also been made that the close working relationship between the Gunners and Traore is the main reason for them to pull themselves ahead of the Reds in this transfer. Aubameyang, who just has one year left to complete his contract with Arsenal, has been strongly linked with Barcelona, the giants from Spain, and Old Trafford recently regarding his moves.
