LONDON, United Kingdom, May 18 – Leicester officials are increasingly concerned star midfielder N’Golo Kante could be prised away by Arsenal this summer.
Midfield dynamo Kante has been a vital cog in the Foxes ‘ Premier League title success with his industrious play.
The 25-year-old has a buy-out clause, believed to be around Sh2.9 billion (£20million), following his bargain Sh956 million (£5.6m) switch from French side Caen last summer.
Arsenal have already registered an interest and, unlike team-mates Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, Kante has given no assurances yet he will stay with the champions for next season.
MirrorSport understands team-mates and King Power officials now fear he could be tempted to link up with fellow Frenchman Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.
The Gunners are also likely to be able to offer him a much bigger new contract as Financial Fair Play rules mean Leicester could be in trouble if their wage-bill suddenly rockets.
