The Arsenal fans often found drowning their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern have been rather used to their fair share of transfer heartache over the years, though one deal in particular has killed the Gunners at the bar.
Over the course of the summer, they were linked with a move for Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante, who looked every inch the remedy to Arsene Wenger’s lacklustre midfield, though he ultimately joined bitter London rivals Chelsea. Since, the Frenchman has been as tireless as he was for the Foxes and his performance against Manchester United has caused a storm on social media.
Marking international teammate Paul Pogba out of the game, the 25-year-old also scored the winning goal at Stamford Bridge and has sent the Arsenal fans propping up our bar into meltdown. With that in mind, here’s a look at how Gunners fans on Twitter reacted to Kante’s performance last night.
Morning…. 32m we could have had Kante but Wenger thought it was too much… then he's spent 35M in Xhaka. Have a good day all.

It amazes me how the Arsenal French scouts found the likes of Flamini, Coquelin, Sanogo… but let Ngolo Kante slip under the radar #Arsenal

Why did we buy Xhaka rather than Kante? #Arsenal
