Arsenal assured that midfield target will be influential at the Emirates

Former Leeds United man Noel Whelan has assured Arsenal that N’Golo Kante will certainly make an impact for them at the Emirates if he joins them.

The Gunners are reportedly interested in a surprising switch for him after he entered the last year of his current deal.

The Frenchman is one of the most decorated midfielders in world football, and he has been delivering top performances in the Premier League since he first moved to the competition with Leicester City and Chelsea.

Signing him could turn Arsenal into potential trophy winners, and Whelan believes it would be a good deal for Mikel Arteta’s side.

He tells Football Insider

“Any deal can be struck if the money is right and Chelsea are willing to listen to the offer.

“If he’s not firmly in the plans of Tuchel then he is surplus to requirements with 12 months left, just as you’ve got Raheem Sterling leaving Man City.

“There has to be a certain turnaround and Chelsea won’t want to lose out on any potential fee they can get in.

“If Arsenal can get him in then he could be very influential for them.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Kante has been one of the best players in the world, and he is such a difference-maker in midfield for club and country.

Although he is not so young, he has the quality that has been lacking in our midfield for some time now.

Chelsea will only allow him to leave for the right fee, so we must be prepared to pay some good money for his signature.

    1. @billy bunter
      Dude is far from being a reject. He is far superior than anyone in our current midfield, Partey included…

      1. I disagree.
        At one point Kante was one of the world truly great midfielders and is still very good when fit. However, when fully fit Partey is a match for any midfielder in the world Kante included.

  1. A wonderful player and a humble, unassuming man for whom I have the utmost respect.Last season I saw signs of fatigue which can be attributed to age catching up with him and he is starting to pick up injuries which he would have brushed off a few years ago.Not for Arsenal, but he has been a truly great player and a model professional unlike so many of the prima donas I have seen in the EPL and elsewhere.

  2. They says class is permanent, top talent may still have a couple of years to offer.
    Wenger did miss a trick not signing this marquee midfielder.

    A keep saying we should not rush to sign Tielemans as there will be an abundance of midfielders available this summer, we need a mobile one in the Kante mould.

  3. His good days are well in the past. Always injured nowadays. I think we have enough of those at AFC

  4. I say yes go for him, Experience is what we need right now perfect fit to substitute for Partey, if managed well he has another 3 years to offer

  5. Not sure I care what Noel Whelan has to say – it doesn’t seem worth re-surfacing a subject every time some new has-been opens his mouth – so I’ll just say the same as I said a couple of days ago when this subject was last aired…

    He’s 31? And his game had a lot to do with being quite fast iirc – so is he still as fast and does he have as much stamina even right now, never mind over the term of his contract?

    Maybe on a one-year deal, pay to play basis.

  6. he is no longer that vibrant, why not bringing Tielemans who is so young and energetic. kante a big NO

  7. Great play and a fighter which can help us fighting for any trophy. If Cr7 can still be a threat at 37 Ngolo can still bossy that Middlefield age is jst a number
