PSG is set to compete with Arsenal for the signature of Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante as he nears becoming a free agent.
Footmercato covered Arsenal’s interest in the World Cup winner last month as Mikel Arteta seeks more quality players.
Kante has yet to agree to a new deal with Chelsea, which has opened the door for the midfielder to join another club.
Arsenal will do well with his experience, however, they might struggle to sign him with PSG named as one of his admirers.
A report from Sport Bild on Twitter claims the Parisians also retain an interest in his signature.
It remains unclear if Kante wants to leave the Premier League, but PSG has the money to attract any player.
Kante has begun to struggle with injuries more often in recent seasons. In fact, he will miss the World Cup as a result of a hamstring injury suffered in August.
The Frenchman been restricted to just two appearances, both in the Premier League, this season due to the injury, and the subsequent surgery he underwent last month means he will not return to action until 2023.
However, that hasn’t stopped teams expressing an interest in signing him, especially given his contract will expire in the summer.
And, as per Foot Mercato in France, Arsenal are one of those teams, with the Gunners on the lookout for a midfielder to add to their squad. However, Fabrizio Romano claimed last month that Arteta’s side had made ‘no approach’ for the player.
Now, they may now face some major competition if they want to secure his signature this time around.
What could change the direction of Kante’s future is that the Blues, as reported by 90min, ‘fear’ that their midfielder could join their London rivals in Arsenal.
But journalist Robin Bairner told GiveMeSport earlier this week that talks did ‘break down’ between the two parties over an extension, with his future remaining uncertain.
