Arsenal face strong competition from Chelsea and Real Madrid as they attempt to sign Leicester midfielder N’Golo Kante this summer.
The Gunners have already failed with an attempt to lure Jamie Vardy away from the Premier League champions and they hope to have more luck with Kante.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen to add some steel to his midfield this summer, but the same can be said of Chelsea and Real, who have also added Kante to their wanted list.
Chelsea are ready to ramp up their interest in Kante after refusing to meet AS Roma’s valuation of Belgium international Radja Nainggolan, while Real see the Foxes star as a cheaper alternative to Paul Pogba.
Reports in Spain claim that Real boss Zinedine Zidane has ordered Los Blancos officials to pull out all the stops to land the youngster and is hopeful of doing a deal.
Leicester are holding for £20million but there is a good chance that price will get hiked up if all three club enter a bidding war.
