Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on his compatriot N'Golo Kante, increasing rumours about the midfielder moving to the Emirates.
The 25-year-old, who has the highest interception per game across Europe, has been constantly linked with the Gunners, with Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain also keen to secure the services of the Frenchman following a successful campaign at the Leicester City.
However, Wenger hailed Kante as a rare talent who enjoys doing his job, adding "he's always where he needs to be" on the pitch.
"I admire and like N'Golo Kante a lot - it gives you ideas," he told beIN Sports.
"He gives you the feeling that the higher the level he plays at, the more at ease he is. We are talking about numbers. He has the most interceptions in Europe and by far.
"He has incredible quality. He feels the game, only very few people can do that. He's always where he needs to be. It is very rare to have that in the central midfielder. Not always orthodox, but always in the right place."
