Arsenal set to try and use contract loophole to snare defensive midfielder for knockdown price

KanteThe Leicester City fans here in the Transfer Tavern are living their wildest dreams this season, with their team on the cusp of winning the Premier League title.

Many punters here in the Tavern had backed the Foxes for relegation this season but after a consistent season the club are on the brink of the unthinkable.

Talk in the bar has turned towards whether or not the club will be able to keep hold of the players who have been so instrumental during their title challenge for the 2016/17 season, with many suggesting that they can’t.

Our landlord has some evidence via The Daily Mail who are claiming that Arsenal may look to secure the services of N’Golo Kante in the summer after boss Arsene Wenger praised his performances during the current campaign.

The Gunners may even get the Frenchman on the cheap after reports emerged that Kante, who signed for the Foxes for £5.5 million, has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave the King Power Stadium for just £20 million.

One Arsenal fan is beside the pool table waiting for the pool knockout to begin and he thinks that Kante would be a superb addition to the Gunners squad, stating that a defensive midfielder should be one of the main additions to the squad this summer.

Arsenal fans, would you welcome Kante? Can he be the next Patrick Vieira? Leicester City fans, just how good has the Frenchman been this season?
