Chelsea’s midfield enforcer N’golo Kante has revealed he was wanted by Arsenal, before he joined Chelsea.
The France international was in high demand after helping Leicester win the EPL, and was wanted by a number of clubs.
He later decided to leave the foxes and join Chelsea for a fee worth £32 million.
However, the midfielder said he felt more wanted at Stamford Bridge and other clubs.
“With Arsenal there was an interest but not a big as other clubs,” Kante told Sky Sports.
“That is why I didn’t go to Arsenal and went to Chelsea.”
