Would N’Golo Kante fix Arsenal’s short-term midfield problem?

Chelsea star offered to Arsenal

Arsenal have been offered the chance to sign French international N’Golo Kante from London rivals Chelsea, according to French news outlet FootMercato.

The midfielder is out of contract next summer, and there has been no indication that the Blues will hand the ageing midfielder fresh terms.

Thus, Kante’s seven-year Chelsea adventure looks set to be over after the curtains of the ongoing campaign draws close.

The 31-year-old was signed from fellow Premier League side Leicester City in the summer of 2016 for a fee of £32 million.

That price quickly turned out to be a bargain as the midfielder helped the West London side to Champions League, Europa League, UEFA Super Cup and FA Cup glory.

However, the stay at Chelsea hasn’t always been all rosy for Kante. Recently, the French international has struggled to gain full fitness. Last year, he was sidelined for 95 days across the whole season.

His worries have not ended this term, as Kante has only featured twice in Chelsea’s 12 games in the season so far.

There is a feeling among both the parties that going different ways in the next summer is the best solution. Especially when the Frenchman is one of the highest paid players at Stamford Bridge, reportedly earning an astonishing £290,000 per week.

Whereas the need for a new midfielder is crystal clear at Arsenal. After an injury to Mohamed Elneny in August, the Gunners tried to lay their hands on Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz. But their attempts were futile as the Villans held onto their man.

The North London outfit will certainly look to add another body at the center of the park in January.

Kante can provide short term solution to a long-term problem. But Arsenal fans would be determined to not see the French World Cup winner in their beloved jersey.

Past signings from Chelsea have proved to be largely underwhelming and it feels like the club’s faithful have reached their saturation point.

Only time or a reliable journalist can cast away their fears.

  1. ALL REALISTS KNOW, that all players decline after a certain period. Kante has OBVIOUSLY declined and at 31 and many injuries too, is not going to suddenly, in fantasy fashion, become the player he was a while back!

    This is a fantasy story written by a fantasist and we realists know there is not a cat in hells chance of us either wanting him or landing him.

    Next topic please!

  2. Ngolo kante is so far the best midfielder in the world, so intelligent, so quickest, best vision ever to predict what his opponent is about to do, the best workholic, no one in football world can work like him, he has the world’s work rate record, he plays for team, he is not selfish, he is just the best, may be he is not social media star, Ngolo kante is just super human,he is a robot, he is not human. But just best.

  3. There is little doubt that for a number of years Kante has been one of the world’s great midfielders. At one point he was probably the best defensive MF in the world and one of the best we have ever seen.
    He is no longer quite at the level he once was and is often injured. So, this one is going nowhere.

  4. If we could get him in January on 18 month contact with a salary of 150,000 a week, it would give time for some of our excellent young midfielders to get a bit of experience, he would be a good back up for Partey but can’t see it happening, and no way give him a 3 year contract and 300,000 a week…
