French giants PSG are looking to beat Arsenal in the race to land Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, according to ESPN.
The Nigerian midfielder has been in imperious form for Leicester this season, helping the Foxes into the Champions League places under Brendan Rodgers.
Since arriving in the Midlands, Ndidi has gone from strength to strength. Now, working under the guidance of Rodgers, the combative midfield star appears to be fulfilling his massive potential.
Ndidi has been mentioned as a potential £50m target for Arsenal, who are keen to strengthen their squad this summer.
However, news of PSG emerging as a contender will be a worry for the Gunners. The French giants have the spending power that most clubs in Europe envy. Inevitably, it could mean Arsenal are blown out of the water when it comes to offering Ndidi and Leicester the right package.
The Nigerian has made 23 Premier League appearances this season. Remarkably, he’s only been on the losing side in five of those games.

Ndidi what Arsenal have been missing for years – TBR View
Of all the players linked with clubs this summer, it’s hard to find someone who is a better fit for a club than Ndidi is for Arsenal.
The Gunners have needed someone with some fight, grit, and mobility in the middle of the park for years now.
Ndidi, then, is the perfect player if they can land him. His all-action style would allow the more creative and flair players in the Gunners ranks to flourish.
If Arsenal only signs one player this summer, then Ndidid should be the one they go all out for. PSG, on the other hand, won’t be too worried and will be confident they can outspend the Gunners.
