Chelsea midfielder, N’Golo Kante, has revealed that Arsene Wenger wanted to sign him for Arsenal, before he chose to join their London rivals last summer.
The France international was in demand after an impressive first Premier League season with Leicester City, but eventually signed for the Blues in a reported £32million deal.
Kante however admits he could have easily been playing for the Gunners, but felt he was more wanted at Stamford Bridge.
“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.”
The 26-year-old has played in 29 of Chelsea’s 30 league games, with Antonio Conte’s side seven points clear at the top.
