Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking a bit worse for wear this morning, after stumbling in hungover after a night full of celebration that accompanied their crucial win over Leicester City yesterday.
After snatching three points off the Foxes yesterday, Arsene Wenger is looking to inflict more misery upon Leicester City as The Sunday People state he’s told his scouts to keep tabs on midfielder N’Golo Kante.
24-year-old Kante has been a crucial part of Leicester’s shock push for the Premier League title this season and he was impressive once again yesterday, in a match where Arsenal snatched victory in the dying moments of the clash.
With Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini all seeing their contracts at the Emirates Stadium expire at the end of the season, midfield additions this summer are expected and Kante, with Premier League experience, may top the list.
Kante’s impressive displays this season are shown by a quick look at his stats, as he’s made the most tackles and interceptions out of all the midfielders in the Premier League.
Our landlord believes Kante would be an excellent addition to Arsenal’s midfield, believing a partnership with Francis Coquelin in the centre of the field would be the perfect platform for the Gunners to build upon.
Arsenal fans, is Kante the ideal midfield signing for your side? Let us know in the comments below!
