It is an amazing fairy tale that Leicester City have won the Premiership this season, but I bet there are not many fans outside of a small City in the Midlands that think they can repeat the feat next year, so it would be little wonder if their newly made superstars don’t look to make a big money move to an established giant.
Arsenal have been linked with Kante for a while, and while Wenger has admitted he has always followed the youngster since his time in France, Ranieri has also admitted that he could leave Leicester if a big enough bid came along.
Kante would be a fantastic addition, but now another Foxes man Riyad Mahrez is also likely to be on the market this summer and is another man that would improve the Gunners no end. The Player-of-the-Year is also ready to cash in, according to his agent, and why shouldn’t Arsenal bring them both in as a matching pair? “When you have been playing the way Riyad has this season it is bound to attract attention.” Kamel Bengougam said. “He is very happy with Leicester and of course it has been a fantastic season,”
“But at his age if the opportunity comes to play for a big team then we would have to think about it. I’d say it’s 50/50 at the moment whether he stays or goes.
“We have interest from the UK and overseas.”
We can only hope that the interest from the UK is from Arsenal, and if we make sure of third place then we will be the only “big team” in the Uk that can guarantee being in the Champions League next year. Who thinks that with these two in our side we could maybe give them another Premiership medal next season?
“They will play in the Champions League next year as well so he would be happy to stay.
