Reports say Chelsea star has already agreed to Arsenal move this summer

Would you accept Kante signing on the cheap at the Emirates? by Darren

After failing to sign Moises Caicedo, rumour has it that, other than Jorginho, Arsenal asked if they could sign Ngolo Kante from Chelsea back in January. Well, I don’t need to tell you that a move for Kante didn’t go through, but what I can tell you is that it is only a matter of time before Kante moves to the Emirates.

I know at this point you are wondering, “Move to the Emirates?” Well, as per TodoFichajes, Arsenal has offered Kante a two-year deal, which will see him remain in London and still play in the PL but not for Chelsea for Arsenal.

Back in the summer of 2016, after Leicester won the league, every top team went shopping at the King Power. Arsenal had Kante on their shopping list, but their London rivals, Chelsea, beat them to that deal. Arsenal went on to sign Granit Xhaka.

Now, about 8 years later, the Arsenal decision-makers are still keen on Kante, and seem to have jumped on the chance to bring the Frenchman on board. Notably, they won’t have to spend anything to get him, as his deal at Stamford Bridge is expiring and he seems set to be a free agent.

Ironically, once he joins, we could get to see, at times, Kante replacing on the pitch Granit Xhaka, the midfielder Arsenal bought after failing to sign him.

I guess at this point it is only wise to ask, “Does Arsenal going for Kante go well with you?”

  1. Next season we will be competing in 4 competitions, so experience and having a strong bench is the key for success. No transfer fee, experience would help, plus for the player he would not play every game and would be happy to be on the bench some days. If the wages are right, it makes sense.

  2. Not ideal. But at least he is mobile enough to play the double pivot role along with Partey which would help in key matches.

  3. Kante is hardly a ‘Chelsea reject’. They were desperate to get him fit, and since returning is one of the few players still earning plaudits. In terms of the modern game, he’s nowhere near retiring or moving down the ladder. Unlike the army of cast offs we’ve bought from them, they don’t want him to leave. If he does though, I doubt Arsenal will be the only suitors. Barcelona and Utd have both expressed recent interest. Claims that ‘Arsenal have an agreement’ sounds like the agent stirring the money pot.

    As a league champion, an integral part of a trophy winning side, his experience, and the mental toughness he displayed in winning the league could be invaluable

  4. Kante was undoubtedly one of the best but with age he has become injury prone and is no longer the dynamo he was.If last night’s debacle taught us something, it is the need to compete physically with the likes of City , and with respect to Kante, Jorginho and Zinchenko they do not meet that requirement.Rice, Caicedo or Anana do.

  5. No all arsenal ever does is panic buy and buy other clubs rejects,never really look for a real quality player that other clubs would be envy of the days where arsenal bought quality unknown players on the cheap are long gone
