Machester United are interested in signing Arsenal target and Leicester City star N’Golo Kante, according to reports.
Wenger is reportedly eyeing a move for a top central midfielder this summer with Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta set to leave the club when their contract expires.
It is believed that Wenger has made Kante his top midfield target this summer but he won’t have it easy trying to sign the midfielder as Manchester United are also keen on the former Caen midfielder.
According to the Daily Star, Manchester United and Leicester were meant to use Sunday’s game when both sides met at Old Trafford to hold talks concerning Kante’s future.
United are desperately in search of defensive midfielders also and the Old Trafford club hope to beat Wenger to Kante’s signature by including in the deal, a young player who would move to the King Power Stadium on loan.
This recent development will definitely be a reason to worry for Wenger as the Frenchman is under increasing pressure to strengthen his club this summer.
Kante joined Leicester City for about £8m last summer and could command as much as £30m this summer after a superb season with the Foxes.
