Thierry Henry urges Arsenal to sign £20m rated combative midfielder

Thierry Henry has called on former club Arsenal to sign Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante at the end of the season.

The Gunners are realistically out of the Premier League title race in the final weeks of the campaign, but they boosted their hopes of a top-four finish with a 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Thursday night.

Henry has claimed that his former side need a new centre-forward to compete for the title next season, but has also picked out Frenchman Kante as a key transfer target for this summer’s window.

“It looks like Arsenal can and should finish in the top four, but there is something to look forward to, and that’s next season,” Henry told Sky Sports News.

“If [Alexis] Sanchez can perform the way he’s performing at the minute, and we have Mesut Ozil carrying on giving the assists he’s been giving since the start of the season, then you can think if you have that striker who can score in that moment – maybe N’Golo Kante [as well], we have lots of names we can throw around.”

 Kante, who reportedly has a £20m release clause in his current deal, was named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year on Thursday.
