Darren Brent urges Arsenal to sign Tottenham Hotspur linked N’Golo Kante
Speaking in an interview with TalkSPORT as quoted by Football. London, former Tottenham striker Darren Brent has urged Arsenal to sign Chelsea star N’ Golo Kante who has been linked with a move to Spurs next summer.
Kante’s Chelsea future has been a subject of constant speculation the last few months. The French World Cup winner’s contract with the Blues is set to expire at the end of the current campaign and talks regarding a new deal have so far gotten nowhere.
Since then, it has emerged that North London clubs Arsenal and Tottenham were both vying for the signature of the 31-year-old midfield destroyer who can be absolutely unplayable on a given day.
If Kante fails to renew his deal with the Blues, he is set to be available on a free transfer. The Frenchman has so much pedigree and experience that many clubs will not want to pass on this opportunity.
The French striker has struggled a lot in recent years with fitness and injuries and this season has been no different. The talented midfielder got injured early in the season and has since then missed all footballing action.
“I don’t think it would ever happen because for what Arteta’s trying to build, Kante is too old. But look at what he can give you, not as a starter, but someone who’s just in and about the squad. Imagine him and Partey…he is fantastic”
If the rumours are indeed true and if Kante is indeed available on a free transfer next summer, then Tottenham must jump on the opportunity and try to sign the World Cup winner for much-needed squad depth.
Despite the fact that the Chelsea man will be 32 years old by the time next summer appears, there is a certain experience that the player brings that you cannot put a price on. Spurs could do with such a star as they look to compete with the best teams in the land.
