I think someone is selling Leicester a bill of goods over here.... Ndidi is a good player but is nowhere in the class of Kante. They are not even the same type of player not to talk of like for like !! I see a lot of Gnashing of teeth here when the dust settles on this one .

Wilfred Ndidi proposed 15 million pounds move to Leicester City is reportedly a done deal as the Nigeria international is presently in England undergoing a medical.

Ndidi was missing from Genk’s training ahead of their cup game against Eupen, and several sources in Belgium confirmed that, the 20 year old is in England for medicals with Leicester City.

He will sign a five year deal reportedly worth £20,000 a week as salary, and his transfer fee could rise to as high as £20 million base on performance.

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri views the Nigerian as a like for like replacement for departed France midfielder N’golo Kante who is now at Chelsea.

Already as reported by Owngoalnigeria.com, he will dorn the jersey number 25 for his new side, when his transfer becomes official in January during the winter transfer window.

More on this story as it develops…..

They're idiots if they haven't scouted him by themselves. I wonder why everyone wants a Kante, people played that position well before Kante

Already posted this in the Ndidi transfer thread, if you have watched him at all, he is more like Leicester's current DM Amartey than a Kante. So not sure why Kante's name keeps getting brought up, if they want a slightly younger version of Amartey then sure, else they will soon be cursing Ndidi out that he is not who they thought he was. It just seems like the easiest way to sell a non EPL player to an EPL team is to compare them to a well known EPL player that plays the same position. I'm still shocked that when Brown Ideye was having a tough time adjusting to the EPL that his coach would say he hadn't seen him play before he was bought, but he came with high recommendations...like really???

If they are looking for a replacement for Kante, then Ndidi is not their player. My concerns about playing Ndidi as a DM is he doesn't seem to cover as much ground and chase down opposing players as effectively as the other top DMs in Europe (e.g Wanyama, Matuidi, Eric Dier, etc). I also do not think that at this point Ndidi has the ability to initiate counter attacks and run comfortably with the ball like some of the more established DMs.

Ndidi seems to be more like a Mikel type player than Kante. Ndidi strengths are his passing and his composure when he wins the ball. He is also able to score the occasional goal from long range shots and set pieces. However, I fear asking him to be the next Kante may be expecting to much.

And who started the counter attack that led to the third goal against Algeria?

I would rather they just allow Ndidi to be Ndidi so he can express his true football character and talent better..all these ''second coming'' of Kante prophecies and mantra's been fore-run by fans of this move are rather too over-bloated and are doing him no favors...Kante was in a class of his own when he was with Leicester and a sudden replacement and replica of him might seem a far-fetched hope, and could end up putting unnecessary pressure on Ndidi considering the price tag and high end expectations, I hope he has a great season with LEICESTER cause I have high hopes in the guy.

It is a win win acquisition for Leisctier whether he plays like Kante or not. I foresee him to surpass whatever Kante achieved with the team. This is a buy they will never regret barring injury . There is no doubt about it Ndidi has all the attributes to be a great and marvelous player.

This is a strange post given you posted Ndidi stats from his europa league games comparing him to kante (and Onazi). This is Leicester city not ManU, City, Pool, Chelsea, Arsenal or even Spurs. Given the hype, I expect him to be a regular from day one and later progress to bigger and better things. He doesn't have to play like kante but he must be effective at his role. As long as he's regularly effective, it doesn't matter whether he runs at 2 miles an hour, he'll survive at Leicester city.

His former coach Mcleish is the one who said he is Kante-Lite. All publication have stressed that he "Can" or "has the ability to" be like Kante.

KoC reported he passed his physicals :clap: :clap: :clap:

Not a fan of Ndidi moving to Leicester. I'm worried that Ndidi may struggle playing as a CM/DM in the EPL, where the game is played at a much faster pace, particularly if he's expected to initiate counter attacks. If you need someone to win tackles make a short outlet pass and hit the occasional long pass then Ndidi is your man. However, if you're looking for someone to initiate attacking runs when he wins the ball, then Ndidi is not your best option. I'm still not convinced that DM/CM is his best position.
