Eintracht Frankfurt defender Evan Ndicka has not ruled out staying with the Europa League champions for another season, according to journalist Fabrice Hawkins.
The French reporter claims that both Manchester United and Tottenham are among the teams “tracking” the 22-year-old but the prospect of Champions League football may tempt him into staying with Frankfurt:
Evan Ndicka est très courtisé. Tottenham et ManU suivent le défenseur de Francfort, récent vainqueur de la Ligue Europa.
À Monaco, son nom revient avec insistance si Benoît Badiashile est transféré.

Ndicka is out of contract at the end of next season and, with Frankfurt seemingly not willing to let him leave for nothing, reports have suggested that he could be sold for around €20m (£17m) this summer.
The Frenchman, who has also been linked with Arsenal and Newcastle in recent months, was a vital player in Frankfurt’s Europa League run, starting 10 of the Bundesliga club’s 12 matches in the competition.
United are said to be looking to strengthen their options at the back and Ndicka could be seen as a cheap solution to replace Eric Bailly, who is expected to be offloaded in the coming weeks.
