Arsenal legend Pires discusses Kante to PSG transfer rumours

Arsenal and France legend Robert Pires does not think Ligue 1 Champions PSG need to sign Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante. 

Kante has cemented his place as one of the best defensive midfielders in European football in recent seasons, and rumours have been rife this summer suggesting that Qatari based outfit would try and lure the 27-year-old back to his homeland with a £100 million bid.

However, Pires does not believe PSG need to sign France international Kante, and the clubs new coach Thomas Tuchel would be better off focusing on trying to promote players from the Parisiens youth set up.:

“I don’t think PSG need to sign [Jerome] Boateng or Kante,” he told bwin.

“The PSG B Team recently beat PSG, and it’s important for (Thomas) Tuchel to see who can help the first team this season.

“I’m not worried about PSG. They are the best team in France, they have a lot of potential and some top-class players.

“The club will have all of their focus on trying to win the Champions League.”
