Leicester City’s N’Golo Kante is claimed to be set to join Arsenal at the end of the season, and we sincerely hope that he does.
The French international has been central to his side’s push for a surprise Premier League title win, prompting a number of superlatives to be credited to his name.
The highest praise of all came from Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson, who rated him as the best this season ‘by a long way’.
Sports Jounalist Henry Winter recently answered a number of questions about our club, and claimed a deal was to be completed for him to join us from Leicester in the coming close-season.
The player himself has refused to rule out an exit from the high-flying club, despite only joining under a year ago.
He said in March: ‘I will fight for Leicester this season. Next season we never know and we will see’.
His manager Ranieri reponded to his comments by claiming as much as he wanted him to stay with the club, he would not stop a player from staying against his wishes.
: “He should rest here. He is working very well. But if some big teams come in for him, who give us a lot of big money, maybe we can think about it.
“If he is not happy here and wants to go… I don’t want sad people here. I want happy people’.
All the reports lead belief that he will indeed switch clubs in the coming window, and with both Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini set to leave at the end of their contracts, he will fit right into our squad without any fuss.
Kante has been an incredible performer week-in week-out this season, and Francis Coquelin could find himself under pressure for the new season.
Do you agree that all the signs point to an Arsenal move?
