Premier league giant Manchester United have shown interest in signing Leicester City versatile midfielder N’Golo Kante despite interest from London rivals Arsenal, Chelsea and French Champions Paris Saint-Germain. The French midfielder was a key figure in Leicester City’s title triumph last season and started in France’s 2-1 win over Romania in Euro 2016..
British tabloids are reporting that New Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho is ready to trigger the strikers $31m release clause and make him United’s second signing since joining the club this summer, having already secured the signature of centre-back Eric Bailly from Villarreal.
Arsenal have also been heavily linked to the Frenchman but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is yet to table any bid for the dtriker, and has instead turned his attention to his Leicester teammate Jamie Vardy.
Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has said Arsene Wenger should sign the Frenchman as it will improve Arsenal’s squad immensely, in their quest for silverware.
Arsenal have already acquired the service of Swiss International Granit Xhaka in that position but the manager has been a long term admirer his country man of Kante’s qualities.
The opportunity to play Champions league football next season put the Gunners in pole position to sign Kante, ahead of Clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea. It would be relatively easy for French man Arsene Wenger to convince his country man Kante as he has always does.
