N’Golo Kante has quickly become a fan favourite amongst our punters here in the pub but after these revelations from a former Premier League star, could that be about to change?
Former Liverpool man Robbie Fowler has revealed in his column for the Mirror that N’Golo Kante only wanted a move to Arsenal this summer and wasn’t at all caught up on a transfer to Stamford Bridge.
The striker said of the move: “I know for a fact that N’Golo Kante wanted to go to Arsenal, Wenger wanted him, but the deal didn’t get done.
“I’m not saying it fell through because of his wages but it fell through because of his wages,” Fowler said.
N’Golo Kante has slotted into the Chelsea midfield almost seamlessly and has formed a cracking partnership alongside Nemanja Matic infront of the defence, playing a massive part in the Chelsea team that looks to have brought the Premier League title back to Stamford Bridge.
But after these revelations from Fowler, will fans still be as happy with the former Leicester City man?
