N’Golo Kante absolutely believes that Arsenal can win the Premier League next season.

  • Kante rates Arsenal’s chances of winning Premiership
  • Midfielder glad Wenger signed new two-year deal with Arsenal

Kante claims that Arsenal can win the title next season and revealed that Arsene Wenger staying at the club is great for the Gunners.

“Can they win the title? Yes, yes, yes,” Kante told the Evening Standard.

“Arsenal is a good team with good players. They won one trophy last season and are a team we have to be careful with.

“It’s good for him (Wenger) and for Arsenal [that he signed a new deal]. He did some good things during many years at Arsenal. But I’m at Chelsea. If we can beat them, we will do it.”

The Chelsea midfielder, who signed from Leicester last season and went on to become an absolute beat for the Blues, obviously backed Arsenal to win the league ahead of his team’s 3-0 win during their pre-season meeting at the Bird’s Nest Stadium.

However, considering Arsenal beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final last season and have another chance to face them again during the Community Shield on 6 August, it’s not all doom and gloom.

Although, Kante seems more optimistic about Arsenal’s chances than most Gooners…

Saying this, it’s common knowledge that Wenger wanted to sign him before he move to Leicester. Perhaps he’s a fan of the boss.
