Arsenal and Manchester United set to fight over Leicester star
Arsenal and Manchester United are set to battle it out for one of Leicester City’s stars this summer window after a lacklustre season for the club that is set to drive their star players away.
The pair will reportedly fight over midfielder Wilfred Ndidi as the player looks for an exit this summer following the Foxes lacklustre season, which has lead to the big clubs of the Premier League being alerted.
The so-called ‘new N’Golo Kante has impressed since joining the club, slotting in where Kante would have the season prior in their title-winning campaign.

It is said that the player snubbed a move to Arsenal last summer and joined Leicester in the January window, being thrown straight into the team and impressing during the second half of the season.
Now, the Gunners will revisit a deal and look to convince the Nigerian midfielder to switch to the London side.
That would not be without competition from Manchester United, though, who are looking for midfield reinforcement after letting both Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger go during the past few months.
Schneiderlin joined top six rivals Everton after requesting a move while Schweinsteiger became frustrated with the lack of chances under Jose Mourinho and decided it would be best he left the club and duly joined Chicago Fire in the MLS.
That leaves the Red Devil’s short in midfield and Wilfred Ndidi may well be the man they want to sign.
