Arsenal are seriously keen on signing Leicester City’s midfielder N’Golo Kante.
Former England international and Ex-gunner Ray Parlour thinks N’Golo Kante would be a great signing for Arsenal and would make their midfield formidable.
“I’m sure there’s a lot of clubs looking at Kante – he’s been superb for Leicester City,” Parlour told Sky Sports.
“He’s like two men in midfield with his work rate and the way he sets play up. You need that platform from midfield – he would be a great signing for Arsenal if they could get him.
“If he was in the Arsenal side, playing behind Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez, then Arsenal would have a formidable midfield. I’m sure if he’s available then Arsene Wenger will definitely be interested in a player of his quality.”
Parlour urged Arsene Wenger to sign the Frenchman who has been a revelation for the Foxes as he guided them in winning their first Premier League title last season.
He added: “Arsenal definitely need players to bring into the club,” he said.
“It’s not rocket science about where they need strengthening. A striker, a centre-half and they’ve lost Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky, so other players need to come into the squad.
“There are players out there – he’s brought one in so far and I expect another three or four. It’s a long, hard season so the squad is very important.
“It’s so competitive for players though. Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp will all be looking in the same market.”
