N’Golo Kanté has met with Olivier Létang, Arsène Wenger loves him

According to L’Équipe, French international and Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kanté has met with PSG Sporting Director Olivier Létang twice ahead of a possible summer move.

Their first meeting occurred at the end of the March when Kanté was formally presented with the PSG project, the second meeting’s timing is unclear at the time of writing.

The two parties remain in contact and a PSG offer could be imminent, but Leicester want at least €40m in order to part with the player.

The player is happy in England, but that won’t make Leicester’s task of keeping to player any easier.

In private, Arsène Wenger is astonished by Kanté’s exceptional ability to intercept possession without giving fouls away. An offer from Arsenal this summer would be “anything but a surprise”.

The two Manchester clubs, but particularly Manchester City are attentive whilst Chelsea have in recent days increased their interest in the player, doubling up their reports and discussions internally about possibly making a bid for the player.
