The Premier League winner is reported £20 million buyout clause in the contract with the Foxes and the Gunners are prepared to pay the amount. The report also mentions that Arsene Wenger wants to complete the signing before Euro Championship commences on June 10th.

Kante rose to prominence after playing a significant role in the Foxes Premier League run this season. His performances for the club earned him his debut call for the France national team earlier this year and he has also been selected in Les Bleus’ national squad for Euro 2016.
The 25-year-old signed for Leicester in a £5.6million move from Caen last summer.
