Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on France midfielder N’Golo Kante.
The defensive midfielder has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks and the Gunners boss has now fuelled speculations by piling praises on the 25 year old.
The midfielder is also attracting interests from Chelsea and PSG but it seems the midfielder favours a move to the Emirates. Wenger has now revealed his admiration for the midfielder claiming he is one of the best in his position.
“I admire and like N’Golo Kanté a lot. It gives you ideas,” as quoted by the Mirror. “He gives you the feeling that the higher the level he plays at, the more at ease he is.
“We are talking about numbers. He has the most interceptions in Europe and by far.
“He has incredible quality. He feels the game, only very few people can do that. He’s always where he needs to be.
“It is very rare to have that in the central midfielder. Not always orthodox, but always in the right place.”
The midfielder has a £20m release clause in his contract at Leicester City which many clubs including Arsenal are interested in activating and has remained coy about his future claiming he would make a decision after the Euro 2016 competition.
It remains to be seen if Wenger would pursue a move for Kante after completing the signing of Granit Xhaka last month.
