Leicester City are beginning to get worried about Arsenal’s attempt to sign their midfielder N’Golo Kante, according to reports.
Arsenal are reportedly keen on signing the French international this summer and Wenger is prepared to activate the player’s release clause this summer. The Premier League Champions had been hoping the midfielder reject Arsenal’s advances to stay with them beyond the current campaign but the Foxes are now fearful the midfielder could complete a move to Arsenal this summer, according to the Mirror via the Metro.
Arsenal have reportedly held preliminary talks with the player’s representatives and the midfielder has indicated his willingness to move to the Emirates this summer.
Arsenal is also on the verge of signing Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach and with Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini leaving the club this summer, Wenger has space for both Kante and Xhaka in his squad.
Chelsea are also interested in signing Kante but the player has revealed his desire to play in the Champions League next season which would give Arsenal the edge to sign the midfielder over its rivals.
Kante joined Leicester City from Caen for around £5.7m last summer and is now one of the most sought after players in the Premier League after a superb season with the Foxes.
