London rivals Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC are all set to face off on Saturday and the Gunners boss says N'Golo Kante is the key figure in Chelsea's Premier League title race and Kante is a player he repeatedly tried to sign for Arsenal.
As in an interview Wenger said, "I watched their game against Liverpool and N'Golo Kante had a huge impact,"
"It's not a coincidence that they are in the position they are and Leicester were in the position they were in last year”
"[Diego] Costa and [Eden] Hazard have come back to very good form so they are very efficient when they go forward.”
"And, as I just said, N'Golo Kante has had a huge impact."
And when the 67-years-old France man Arsène Wenger has been asked whether he tried to sign France international and current Chelsea’s midfielder N'Golo Kante.
Wenger explained, "Yes,"
"When he was in France, when he was at Leicester."
He was less forthcoming on why a deal could not be done.
"Again, I cannot explain to you absolutely everything, but it is quite obvious where he has gone," added the Frenchman.
"Transfers are transfers, you cannot explain absolutely everything."
