Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has advised Arsene Wenger to bring in N'Golo Kante to the Emirates to make the Gunners' midfield formidable. The former player at the north London club also urged the Frenchman to complete three more signings in the summer transfer window.
The France international joined Leicester City from Caen in 2015 and had an impressive debut season as the Foxes won the title in the 2015/16 season. His fine form has seen him attract interest from clubs from England and across Europe.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in securing the services of Kante. According to the Mirror, the Red Devils are ready to make a £22m ($31.3m) approach in landing the Euro 2016 midfielder.
Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka became Arsenal's first summer signing. Parlour has now urged Wenger to beat United, Chelsea and PSG in signing Kante and add three more new faces to the Emirates.
"I'm sure there's a lot of clubs looking at Kante - he's been superb for Leicester City," Parlour told Sky Sports.
"He's like two men in midfield with his work rate and the way he sets play up. You need that platform from midfield - he would be a great signing for Arsenal if they could get him.
"If he was in the Arsenal side, playing behind Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez, then Arsenal would have a formidable midfield. I'm sure if he's available then Arsene Wenger will definitely be interested in a player of his quality," he said.
"Arsenal definitely need players to bring into the club. It's not rocket science about where they need strengthening. A striker, a centre-half and they've lost Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky, so other players need to come into the squad.
"There are players out there - he's brought one in so far and I expect another three or four. It's a long, hard season so the squad is very important. It's so competitive for players though. Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp will all be looking in the same market," the former midfielder said.
