Arsenal legend Ian Wright has made a bold claim insisting Arsene Wenger did not try hard enough to sign former Leicester man N’Golo Kante.
Wright has criticised Wenger for failing to get a deal done for the 25-year-old in a hilarious and somewhat unusual Instagram post.
Kante was reported linked with a move to Arsenal last summer but opted out to sign for Chelsea, earning himself a £30million summer move to Stamford bridge.
The Frenchman was sensational for Leicester City to help them win the Premier League last season; he has established himself in the Arsenal midfield since his arrival.
However, Wenger revealed last week he failed on two occasions to sign Kante for Arsenal – when he was at Leicester and French side Caen.
Wright, posted a photo of Kante in Chelsea colours with the caption: “What can you say about this man?
“Lost his virginity at 14 and won it back! Wenger tried to sign him twice! Didn’t try hard enough.”
When asked about the failed attempts to sign Kante, Wenger said: “Once when he was in France and when he was at Leicester.

“We cannot explain everything, but it is quite obvious when you look at where he has gone.
“I do not want to talk more about that. Transfers are transfers.”
