‘For now, I am happy at Leicester’ – N’Golo Kante plays down exit talk as Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain linked with moves
N’Golo Kante has played down speculation linking him with a move away from Leicester.
The Frenchman has enjoyed a sensational debut Premier League campaign after arriving from Caen for £5.6million last summer.
He was a virtual ever-present for the Foxes, playing a key role in the club’s remarkable title triumph, and was nominated for the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award,
Kante’s rise has caught the attention of clubs across Europe, with Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus all linked with summer moves for the 25-year-old.
But the midfielder, part of Didier Deschamps’ France squad for Euro 2016, insists he is not thinking about a summer exit and is focused only on his international duties.
“For now, I am happy at Leicester,” he told L’Equipe. “I do not pay too much attention to everything that is said. For now, I am in Leicester and I focus on the Euros.
“I think that my season at Leicester surprised everybody. People liked to see a new Premier League champion. We had a magnificent season.
“And then, my debut with France went well. Maybe my journey also helps compared to other people who come from amateur football.
“I try to stay the same. I am not aware that my personality is different.”
