Ndidi Rejects Sevilla Offer, Victor Osimhen’s Market Value Drops

Before the 2024 summer transfer window opened, Ndidi’s contract with newly promoted Premier League club, Leicester City had expired but the club refused to give up on him.

Reports claimed that the 27-year-old Nigerian defensive midfielder turned down Leicester City’s initial contract extension offer because he didn’t like the monetary aspect of the deal.

Ndidi is currently a free agent and many top clubs including FC Barcelona and Everton have been linked to him.

A report by Spanish publication, Estadio Deportivo, claimed that Sevilla offered him a contract but the Nigerian defensive midfielder turned it down with the hope that a perfect offer would come from a Premier League side.

This development, according to reports, is good news for Everton who are said to be very interested in the Nigerian midfielder as they continue to improve Sean Dyche’s squad ahead of the forthcoming season.

Meanwhile, Ndidi’s national teammate, Victor Osimhen will not be the most excited footballer right now as his transfer market value has dropped by €10 million, according to Transfermarkt.

Osimhen hit the peak of his football career during the 2022-2023 season in which he scored 26 goals and provided five assists in 32 league games for Napoli. His performance helped the club to win the Scudetto in the said season.

Due to that, his transfer market value rose to £130 million and later fell to £110 million following his not-too-impressive first half of the 2023-2024 season.

Currently, the 25-year-old striker is looking forward to leaving Napoli even though he still has two seasons left on his contract. But no club has been able to trigger his release clause which is worth €130 million.

There are reports that Napoli have lowered their asking price for the player to around €100 million due to how difficult it has been for the club to get a serious suitor.

As the interest of clubs in him continues to drop, Transfermarkt has also continued to drop his market value which is now set at €100 million based on their release in July.
