Am happy at KingPower say’s N’golo Kante Leicester midfielder

Leicester midfielder N’Golo Kante insists he is not interested in the speculation surrounding his club future and is solely focused on the upcoming European Championship in France.

Kante impressed throughout his debut season in the Premier League and was an integral part of the Foxes side that won an unlikely first league title in the club’s history.

And now the 25-year-old France international, who joined Leicester from Caen in 2015, is being linked with a number of Europe’s top clubs, including Arsenal, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

However, the midfielder played down the chances of a summer move away from the King Power Stadium and is instead focused on performing well for Didier Deschamps’ side at Euro 2016.

“For now, I am happy at Leicester,” Kante told French publication L’Equipe. “I do not pay too much attention to everything that is said. For now, I am in Leicester and I focus on the Euros.

“I think that my season at Leicester surprised everybody. People liked to see a new Premier League champion. We had a magnificent season.

“And then, my debut with France went well. Maybe my journey also helps compared to other people who come from amateur football.

“I try to stay the same. I am not aware that my personality is different.”

Kante has been included in the France squad to face Cameroon in a friendly on Monday evening. Deschamps’ side are also due to face Scotland in Metz on June 4 in what is their final warm-up match before the start of the Euros.

The French will then play Romania in the opening game of the tournament on June 10, before facing Albania on June 15 and Switzerland on June 19 in their remaining Group A fixtures.
