Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs rocked as PSG lead £20m race for Premier League sensation

Kante

You won’t find the Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern agreeing on much no matter how often you pop your head in, though there’s been unanimous scathing of Paris Saint-Germain as they reportedly lead the chase for Leicester star N’Golo Kante, according to the Daily Mail.

The tireless central midfielder has been one of the subplots of the season as the Foxes strive towards the most unlikely usurping in English football history by winning the Premier League.

Having arrived in largely unheralded fashion from Caen over the course of the summer, the Frenchman has been one of the players of the season.

The 24-year old recently became the first player in Europe’s top five leagues to win 100 tackles this season and has been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year Award.

While his current side are guaranteed Champions League football next year, recent reports claim he has a £20m buyout clause inserted into the deal he penned upon his arrival at the King Power Stadium.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs have been touted as potential landing spots in an effort to improve upon this season’s fortunes in the capital.

However, it is understood that PSG are currently in pole position as they attempt to lure him back to the city in which he was born.

Following a third successive quarter-final exit in the continent’s elite competition, a major rebuild is expected from the dominant Ligue 1 champions.

Thiago Motta will soon be 34, while Adrien Rabiot has been linked with moves to the Premier League.

As a result, they are thought to have targeted the Leicester man in an effort to refresh their engine room.

Will Kante reproduce his form next season? Can he develop into one of the best French midfielders around?
