Barring any last minute hijack of the deal, N’Golo Kante will be joining Arsenal this summer according to various reports in the French media this week. Reports from France claims the Frenchman wants to move to Arsenal rather than Chelsea this summer.
With Rosicky, Flamini and Arteta set to leave Arsenal this summer, Arsenal could do with the signing of one or two midfielders, the Gunners are said to be close to signing Granit Xhaka but Wenger is said to also be interested in signing N’Golo Kante.
Should the report the true and Wenger manages to sign both Kante and Xhaka in the same window, it could only mean Ramsey is leaving. I can’t see Wenger signing both players and leaving them on the bench and with the Gunners also linked with the signing of Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Ramsey’s place in Arsenal’s midfield is seriously under threat.
And to be fair, there are only but a few Arsenal fans who will complain should Ramsey leaves Arsenal and Kante replaces him. Ramsey is no doubt a talented player, unfortunately he needs to definite his role. Judging by his performance in the last few years, he is certainly not discplined enough to play the deep lying midfield role for Arsenal and he is certainly not a winger.
