The 25-year-old is one of the most in-demand players in Europe after an outstanding season for the Foxes in the Premier League, and United are reported to be weighing up a move.

Reds boss Jose Mourinho is keen to add some steel to his midfield and is ready to activate the £22million release clause that is in the France international’s contract.

The Gunners turned down the chance to sign Kante before he joined Leicester for £5.5million from Caen last summer and have been chasing his services ever since.

Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are also known to be in the hunt for the talented midfielder and Leicester will be hoping a bidding war will hike up the price even further.

There have been suggestions Leicester are ready to offer Kante a bumper new deal in the hope he will stay at the King Power Stadium, but there is every chance he will move on with clubs queuing up for his signature.
