Days just keep getting tougher for Arsenal fans to pass by as French football expert Julien Laurens has revealed that the Premier League player of the Year N’Golo Kante was up for grabs from Caen and did not come to The Emirates because they considered him not having enough attributes to succeed in London.
This decision might prove to be Arsenal’s biggest blunder of recent times after that of letting RVP go, as Kante arrived at Leicester and immediately led them to the Premier League title in 2016, before now becoming a neighbour with Chelsea and performing his magic there as they sit pretty in top spot at the moment.
While further speaking on this topic, Julien added: “They looked closely, they went to see him at the French camp – Arsene went to see him a lot. They just didn’t think he had enough to make it into their team and then it was too late. Then they tried to sign him last summer and he decided to go to Chelsea.”
Arsene thought he might have compensated for the loss by bringing in Granit Xhaka, but that decision seems to have backfired, as the player has had zero impact on proceedings in the right direction. The other options in Wenger’s squad include Ramsey and Coquelin, both having a season to forget.
The Gunners are currently outside the Champions League qualifying spots, and with fans heavily demanding an exit from their manager, the emergence of this bit of news might add a final nail in Wenger’s coffin.
