The Spanish La Liga champions, Barcelona will move for Super Eagles and Leicester City’ midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi on a free transfer next summer.
The Nigerian International is into the final months of his contract with the English Championship side, Leicester City.
According to Barca Universal, the combative midfielder is already among the players shortlisted by Barcelona for next summer’s transfer window.
Barcelona’s financial situation has forced them to sign free-agent players in recent times.
The Blaugurana signed free agents İlkay Gündoğan and Iñigo Martínez this summer.
Ndidi has been in fantastic form for Leicester City this season.
The former KRC Genk star has been deployed in an advanced midfield position by Italian manager Enzo Maresca this term.
The player has scored three goals in all competitions for the Foxes in the current campaign.
The Nigeria international will be free to negotiate with a foreign club from next January.
He joined Leicester City from Belgian Pro League club KRC Genk in January 2017.
