Ndidi has been in spectacular form in the English Premier League before the season was suspended, with several other top clubs interested in the 23-year-old.

The French champions, through their sporting director, are planning to bid for the star who joined Leicester in 2017 from Genk for £15million.

Ndidi’s contract with the Premier League side will run for another four years and he is now valued around £45-50million.

Although the club brought in Idrissa Gueye last summer for £30m from Everton and Leandro Paredes the previous January for £36m from Zenit, PSG are not satisfied with their performance in the midfield.

Aside Ndidi, 26-year-old Partey who is also having a very good season, is also another name on their shortlist. The Ghana international's buy-out clause is £43.7m.

Leonardo is also a big fan of Bakayoko. The Frenchman, 25, had a revival at Monaco this season and still belongs to Chelsea, where he endured a difficult spell before being loaned to Milan and then back the Ligue 1 side. Monaco will not trigger his £30m release out clause.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigeria’s Wilfred Ndidi has been named among the top ten best midfielders in the English Premier League this season, according football facts and statistics website Squawka, cited by Complete Sports.

The Leicester City star has been impressive since joining the Foxes in 2017 in a £17 million transfer deal from Belgian side Genk.

In a 3–1 win over Liverpool on 27 February 2017, Ndidi won 11 of his 14 tackles, a feat bettered only by Chelsea's N'Golo Kanté who made 14 tackles against the same club in January.

Other big stars in the top ten best midfielders as releaded by Squawka include Manchester City sensation Kevin de Bruyne as well as Liverpool stars Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum.
