Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Reports have suggested that The Foxes are currently chasing Kante’s replacement which gives Arsenal the chance to snap up the French man.
According to the report, Claudio Ranieri is close to completing the £12million signing of Nice midfielder Nampalys Mendy who has just one year left on his contract.
Reports also suggested that Leicester had originally wanted Mendy last summer, but had to settle for Kante since the player was not available at that time.
Kante is currently being chased by Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United. The 25-year-old would certainly be available if Mendys move is completed and this is a real chance of Arsenal to snap up Kante before the other interested Clubs as the player would want to be in the Champions League next season.
Kante has also been linked with a move to PSG but it is believed the player prefers to remain in England for the time being. And with Wenger said to have personally held talks with him, Arsenal surely have a good chance of signing him. Some reports claim Arsenal already have a medical scheduled for Kante but we believe those reports are way off the mark. Though this is not saying there is a chance of Kante signing for us this summer.
Kante joining Arsenal could however mean someone in the current team will have to leave. Ramsey has already been rumoured to be on his way out and I personally won’t be surprised if the Welshman leaves the club at the end of the transfer window.
Chamberlain has also been linked with a move back to Southampton for a season long loan spell.
