Manchester United are set to rival Arsenal in the race to sign Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante, according to the Mirror.
The Old Trafford club are keen to strengthen their squad this summer and Mourinho has been given a massive warchest to turn the Manchester side to title challengers next season.
Top of the Red Devil’s list is Arsenal target N’Golo Kante. Wenger is said to be very keen on the defender and is prepared to activate his £22m release clause after this summer’s European championships. Manchester United are now set to do same and convince the midfielder that Old Trafford is the right place to continue his development.
Wenger is interested in replacing Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini this summer and with Granit Xhaka the only midfield signing this summer, Wenger still has space for Kante in his squad. Manchester United are keen on a physical imposing midfielder, hence their reason for their interest in Kante.
Wenger recently revealed his admiration for the player and the French man would be keen not to let his rivals beat him to the signature of the midfield enforcer.
Kante was a prominent member of Leicester City’s title winning squad of last season and the French international has so far remained coy about his future.
