Eintracht Frankfurt’s Evan Ndicka is set to be available as a free transfer in the summer and Liverpool are reportedly among the clubs interested.

The 23-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, with the Mirror’s David Maddock indicating that the Reds are interested in a move to replicate the free signing of Joel Matip in 2016.

It is likely that Nat Phillips will depart this summer and the futures of Matip and Joe Gomez remain uncertain, so Ndicka would likely represent a positive step towards Jurgen Klopp’s summer rebuild.

The defender has made 35 appearances for his club this season and can also operate as a left-back.
