Arsenal have been linked with the signing of many players in the transfer window in the last few weeks. Aside strikers, midfielders have also been linked which is surprising considering the number of midfielders Arsenal currently have. According to report, Arsenal target N’Golo Kante is the subject of a £35million bid from the Chinese Super league. According to the reports, Kante is open to leaving Leicester City and the Foxes themselves are opening to sell him and have accepted the £35 million bid from the Chinese club.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has previously declared his admiration of Kante, so a move to Arsenal this summer would not come as a shock. Kante is currently on international duty with his nation at Euro 2016 and will be looking to be dressed for the final against Portugal on tonight.
Shanghai SIPG manager Sven Goran Eriksson is set to submit a formal bid for the French and Leicester City midfielder, as reported by The Daily Mirror.
It is widely thought that the Gunners have already enquired about the possibility of signing Kante this summer transfer window, as well as Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris St-Germain.
Premier League champions Leicester signed Kante for £5.6million last summer and his brilliant performances with the Foxes have attracted interests from top European clubs.
The French international midfielder played 40 games in all competitions and scored one goal in a Premier league match against Watford.
Wenger had earlier this summer signed Swiss international midfielder Grant Xhaka and the capturing of Kante could see them compete favourably with their Premier League rivals.
