There have been numerous Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with the outstanding Leicester midfielder N’Golo Kante in the last few weeks, and even Henry Winter revealed to the Arsenal Supporters that he thought Wenger would buy him this summer.
Wenger has already revealed his admiration for the Frenchman when he was talking about Leicester’s success a couple of weeks ago: “It’s down to the quality of players you bring in and sometimes the opportunities are not always necessarily linked with the amount of money.
“If you look well, they finished very strongly last season and on top of that they brought some players in who have given them something more, like N’Golo Kante.
“He had a huge impact. We have spoken about [West Ham’s] Dimitri Payet – you could say along with Payet he is one of the players who had a big impact in this league.”
Last month Wenger also admitted that he had been watching Kante since he was a young boy in France. “Kante is a huge force in their team,” said Wenger. “Of course I know him.
“You look at his career and you will be amazed. Because he played in Suresnes in Paris at the age of nine, 10 years old.
“After, he went to Boulogne as an amateur. They didn’t want to sign him pro.
“After, he went to Caen, and then he came finally to England. But, everywhere he has been, he has always adapted to the level where he was.”
Surely Wenger wil be kicking himself that he didn’t buy him earlier, but with the latest revelation that he has a buyout clause of just 20 million surely this is Le Prof’s last chance to get him for a bargain price. We all know that Arteta, Flamini and Rosicky will be leaving the Emirates this summer so there is ample room to bring Kante into the Arsenal squad.
Don’t hang about Wenger, go get him!
