Jamie Vardy may move to Arsenal soon

Arsenal have recently been linked with a move for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, but there is a possibility that the club could make a double swoop from the Premier League champions after manager Arsene Wenger admitted that midfielder N’Golo Kante is a great player.

Wenger does not make statements about players that he does not want to sign. After an impressive season in the Premier league in which he contributed a lot towards the league title,Kante is one of several players linked with a move away from Leicester.

Even though the club will be playing in the Champions League as champions of England, playing for a big club like Arsenal is a chance that does notcome often. Wenger says thatKante gives the impression of a player who will be even better when he plays for a top team. Even though the Frenchman admitted thatKante may not be the orthodox midfielder on the market today, he invariably finds himself in the right place at the right time according to the French manager. Arsenal, though, will have to come up with a big offer in order to sign him, as Paris St Germain are thought to be interested in the Frenchman.

“I admire and like N’Golo Kante a lot. He gives you ideas. 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,” said Wenger about a potential signing in the form of Kante.
