Premier League star favours transfer to Chelsea this summer, Arsenal interested – report
N'Golo Kante is leaning towards a transfer to Chelsea this summer, according to reports
N’Golo Kante is keen on securing a transfer to Chelsea this summer and is ready to turn down the offer of a new contract at Leicester City, according to reports.
The France midfielder was one of the Premier League’s most consistent performers last season and his fine displays for the Foxes helped Claudio Ranieri’s men win the top-flight title.
Kante’s eye-catching form has inevitably triggered speculation about his future at Leicester City beyond the summer.
Now, The Telegraph is reporting that Kante is now emerging as one of Chelsea’s top transfer targets this summer as Antonio Conte prepares for his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.
The same report goes on to say that Kante is poised to turn down the offer of a new contract at Leicester City worth £100,000 a week.
The story also claims that Juventus, Manchester United and Arsenal are among the other clubs interested in signing Kante in the summer transfer window.
Arsenal, however, have already bolstered their midfield options this summer with the signing of Switzerland international Granit Xhaka.
Kante is currently on international duty with France at Euro 2016 and is unlikely to make a decision about his future until after the conclusion of the tournament.
