Chelsea in control of race to sign £20m Premier League midfielder – report
Chelsea are confident of landing N'Golo Kante in a £20m deal from Leicester City, according to Daily Mirror
Chelsea are in control of the race to sign Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante this summer, according to Daily Mirror.
The France international is one of the most-coveted midfielders in Europe after the 25-year-old helped to inspire the Foxes to Premier League glory last season.
Kante netted one goal in 37 top-flight appearances for the reigning English champions last season after he moved to the King Power Stadium from French side Caen.
The Leicester star has been linked with a move to Champions League holders Real Madrid and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, as well as Premier League trio Arsenal, Chelsea and United.
According to Daily Mirror, Chelsea are confident that they are leading the race to sign the £20m midfielder ahead of interest from some of their biggest Premier League rivals.
Chelsea finished in ninth place in the Premier League table last season after a disappointing defence of their top-flight crown after winning the title in May 2015.
