NGolo Kante

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard might have made it clear that he wants to keep France international midfielder, N’Golo Kante at the club but that has not stopped the player from being linked away.

N’Golo Kante was linked away from Stamford Bridge in the last summer transfer window with Arsenal and Man United reported to be interested in him but he ended up staying at Stamford Bridge.

The World Cup winner is being wanted by a host of top European clubs, including Paris Saint Germain, Inter Milan, and Real Madrid.

His performance so far this season has caught the eye and he has established himself again at the powerhouse of the club over the last few games which have convinced manager Frank Lampard to keep him at the club.

Talks are reported to have been held between the Blues boss and the former Leicester City midfielder with the conclusion that he would be staying at Chelsea for more years but that is not convincing enough for Real Madrid to step down from his chase.

However, Real Madrid are still insisting on the signature of the Chelsea midfielder and they are read to tempt him in the summer transfer window but the decision would be left to the player to make, if he would be interested in a move or not.

N’Golo Kante has become one of the most coveted midfielders in football especially with his current form with Chelsea. He will not be forgotten for his superb performance when he was with Leicester City and helped them win the Premier League title in 2016.

So far, he has played 182 games for Chelsea and has scored 11 goals 8 assists but that is not the end if he is to stick to his words to remain with the West London outfit for more years.
