Leicester City deeply concerned that Premier League rivals could snare star midfielder for £20M

KanteThe Leicester City supporters here in the Transfer Tavern have been permanently intoxicated with alcohol since they were officially crowned Premier League champions over a fortnight ago.

The club shocked the football world by winning the title by a mammoth 10 points from Arsenal in second and are already buzzing for life in the Champions League during next season.

It is not expected to be quite as plain sailing for the Foxes next season however and talk is already linking members of the champions elect with moves elsewhere.

Our landlord has spotted some news in The Mirror which claims the East Midlands-based club are increasingly worried that Arsenal are set to trigger the £20 million release clause that currently sits in N’Golo Kante’s contract.

Money talks in football and the Gunners would be able to offer the French midfielder a much better salary than the one he is currently paid at the King Power Stadium, which could make the move more likely to happen.

Kante was in irresistible form for the Foxes this season and his form has earned him a place in the France squad for Euro 2016.

Leicester City fans, would it be a massive blow to lose Kante? Who would you like to see replace him?
