If a report by the daily star is anything to go by, Liverpool have entered the race for the signature of N’Golo Kante but unfortunately for the Reds, the player has decided he will move to Arsenal this summer. Klopp is said to be ready to sign the midfielder as a replacement for Jordan Henderson who is likely to leave the Anfield club this summer.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham and PSG have already been linked with the signing of the player. But Wenger, having met the player’s agent in France has put Arsenal as the clear favorites for the signature of the 25-year-old Frenchman.
Wenger is said to see the player as the ideal replacement for Aaron Ramsey who has been linked with a move to both Barca and Manchester City in the last few weeks. Kante is said to have a release cluse put at £22m which Arsenal will have to activate if they want to sign him.
And aside the fact that Ramsey may leave, there has been rumours that Chamberlain may be on his way back to Southampton on a season long loan deal which explains the need for Kante. Coupled with the fact that Flamini, Arteta and Rosicky have all been released by the club.
If Kante signs for Arsenal, he will be expected to fight for a starting shirt with Ramsey ( if he doesn’t leave ), Cazorla, Wilshere and Elnenny.
