Arsene Wenger reveals he missed out on another class midfielder

If you had a penny for every time Arsene Wenger missed out on a signing you’d be able to buy a Texas mega ranch.

Yaya Toure, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Didier Drogba and Cristiano Ronaldo all reportedly came close to moving to North London, only for deals to fall through for one reason or another.


Now you can add the man behind Leicester’s transformation into title contenders to that list.

No, not Jamie Vardy or Riyad Mahrez, but the one-man wrecking ball that is N’Golo Kante.

We went to watch him and we saw he had quality, but I didn’t know he would come so quickly to England.


The 24-year-old moved to Leicester from Caen in the summer and is a shoe in for the team of the year at the end of the season.

And Arsenal fans are pretty bitter about missing out on him.

Football? Yeah mate, already completed it.
