Chelsea Target ‘5f 9ins’ Star As Kante’s Replacement.
2015-16 Premier League Champions Chelsea are presently in search of another midfielder this summer as they might fail in their mission to convince France international N’Golo Kante to remain at Stamford Bridge beyond this summer.
Kante has been a source of speculations since last month as he was linked with Paris St-Germain’s move, and in a recent report, there are other clubs interested to sign the prolific defensive midfielder.
Apart from the Ligue 1 Champions, a recent report suggests that Juventus are keen on the player’s signature, thereby, making it hard for Chelsea to retain him beyond this summer.
Reports emanating from Cobham training ground this morning claimed that Chelsea representatives are in France to discuss with N’Dombele’s agent over the possibility of luring him to Stamford Bridge, despite interest from Tottenham Hotspur.
According to French media outlet L’Equipe, N’Dombele is being tracked by the two Premier League giants but the Blues are presently leading the race for his signature.
Tottenham saw their £35m-offer rejected by Lyon during previous transfer market. The Ligue 1 side are not expecting anything short of a £53m offer from any suitors willing to capture the 21-year-old’s signature this summer.
