Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has urged the Gunners to try and sign Leicester City anchorman N’Golo Kante this summer, writes Mirror Football’s James Whaling.
Gunners legend Henry has watched his former side’s Premier League title bid slide away once again this season and he believes Kante could be the man to help Arsene Wenger’s side go to the next level and claim silverware.
Henry told Sky Sports: “If [Alexis] Sanchez can perform the way he’s performing at the minute, and we have Mesut Ozil carrying on giving the assists he’s been giving since the start of the season, then you can think if you have that striker who can score at that moment — maybe N’Golo Kante [as well], we have lots of names we can throw around.
“Mahrez was also linked, but it’s going to be a very busy summer for Arsene because you need to get that excitement back and the fans to look forward to something for next season.”
Almost unheard of this time last year, box-to-box midfielder Kante has been at the heart of the Foxes’ stunning bid for the top-flight crown. The 25-year-old Frenchman’s work rate and superb passing game saw him earn selection for the PFA Premier League Team of the Year this week and with Leicester five points clear at the top, he’s on the verge of claiming a Premier League title in his first season in England.
