Report: Arsenal to sign £20m midfielder Kante

Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante, who has had a breath-taking season for the newly crowned Premier League champions – is all set to join Arsenal in the summer transfer window, according to EuroSport.

The Gunners have reportedly won the race to secure the services of the Frenchman this summer.

The north Londoners have been heavily linked with the 25-year-old in recent weeks as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his midfield options following the exit of three superstars Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky.

Kante, who is under contract at the King Power until June 2019 – has scored one goal and provided four assists in 39 appearances in all competitions for Claudio Ranieri’s side this term, attracting interest from the Premier League’s heavyweights and Europe’s top clubs.

According to EuroSport, the France international was opted to move to Emirates ahead of interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Foxes signed Kante from Caen last summer ahead of a stunning 2015/16 Premier League season.
