Chelsea to offer Premier League star five-year deal – report

Chelsea are closing in on a deal to sign N'Golo Kante from Leicester, according to reports

Chelsea are ready to treble N’Golo Kante’s wages in order to tempt him to secure a transfer to Stamford Bridge this summer, according to reports.

The Blues have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks as the west London club prepare for Antonio Conte’s arrival in west London.

Despite the speculation, Chelsea are yet to officially announce any signings as they bid to bounce back from a disappointing season.

The west London club have been heavily linked with a bid to sign Kante from champions Leicester City as they look to bolster their midfield options.

Now, the Daily Mirror is reporting that Chelsea are willing to offer the France international a five-year contract of more than treble his current wages of £35,000 to move to the club amid reported interest from Paris Saint-Germain.
