Arsene Wenger has revealed his admiration for Leicester City’s star N’Golo Kante amid speculation he could be on his way to the Emirates Stadium.
Kante guided the Foxes in winning last season Premier League title with the Foxes which has earned him his first call-up for the French national team.
The 25-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates and has since stated he will decide on his future after the Euro 2016 tournament.
‘I admire and like N’Golo Kanté a lot. It gives you ideas,’ he told beIN Sports.
‘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 French international has a £20million release clause in his contract at the King Power Stadium.
