Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for Leicester’s N’Golo Kante as you’ve probably noticed.
Despite the fact that the player would not fit into Arsenal’s system at all, the links have grown stronger over the past few weeks with claims being made that Arsene Wenger has been meeting with some chaps about the transfer.
So when the Leicester City squad’s wages were leaked, I thought I’d have a little look to see just how much Kante is earning.
The good news, if Arsenal do want to lure him away from the league champions, is they’d not only be able to do so with a sweet financial package, but it also wouldn’t break the wage structure already in place at the club.
You see, Kante currently earns ‘just’ £55kpw with the Foxes.
Of course, he could very well opt to stay where he is and Leicester themselves could give him a massive bump in pay, but let’s face it – as amazing as this season has been for them, they are hardly likely to repeat it, especially not while having to play in the Champions League.
What a sentence!
FYI, Jamie Vardy is their top earner on £80kpw while Player of the Year, Riyad Mahrez, earns the same as Kante.
