Chelsea ready to sign duo in £80m double deal – report
Chelsea want to sign both N’Golo Kante and Kalidou Koulibaly this summer, say reports
Chelsea are closing in on the signings of N’Golo Kante and Kalidou Koulibaly this summer in a double deal worth £80m, according to reports in the British media.
The Sun is reporting that the Blues are edging ever closer towards securing the signatures of both players as Antonio Conte prepares for his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.
The report claims that Chelsea are confident of securing the signing of Kante from Premier League champions Leicester City in a deal worth around £20m.
And the same story says that the Blues also want to land Koulibaly from Napoli – and that the Serie A side will demand a huge £50m fee for the defender.
Conte has been taking his first training sessions this week as he prepares for his first taste of management in the Premier League next season.
The Blues have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks but, despite all of the speculation, have thus far only signed striker Michy Batshuayi from Marseille this summer.
Chelsea finished in tenth place in the Premier League table last season.
