Wenger hints he’s ready to make Premier League star Arsenal’s second signing
Is Arsene Wenger lining up a transfer bid to sign N'Golo Kante from Leicester this summer?
Arsene Wenger has refused to rule out the possibility of bringing N’Golo Kante to Arsenal this summer.
The Gunners have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks as Wenger bids to revamp his squad ahead of next season.
The north London side have already signed midfielder Granit Xhaka and have been linked with a number of other top stars this month.
Wenger has signalled his intention to bolster his attacking options at The Emirates by making a move to sign Jamie Vardy from Leicester.
Although that bid proved to be unsuccessful, Wenger stopped short of revealing that he is keen to bring Kante to The Emirates this summer.
Speaking to beIN Sports, Wenger said: “Kante is on the list of many clubs. It is an area where we have many players.
“We will see what happens in the next two or three weeks. It looks like Leicester have bought a player from Nice [Nampalys Mendy] with similar qualities to Kante, so whether they envisage to lose him or not I don’t know.
“If you ask 100 people in the street if they want Kante to play [for France] you will get 100 saying yes. He has done the job in one or two games and I am not surprised.
“I said two months ago this boy will play the whole European Championship. We know him well from Leicester now and I am not surprised that he is starting. He has been one of the revelations of the French team.”
Arsenal are on the lookout for reinforcements as Wenger looks to steer the Gunners to their first Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
The Gunners finished second and ended the season without a trophy last term.
