Chelsea midfielder is one of two top targets for extravagant European rivals next summer

Kante

The news just will not go away, maybe unless Paris Saint Germain come out to deny them, or Chelsea do so before the summer transfer window, and we all know that is highly unlikely. So expect your head to get bashed a few more times, if you are of Chelsea persuasion.

Fact is PSG need a new defensive midfielder, and with one of France’s best exports in the last few years in the position, enjoying himself in England with a struggling club this season, it’s always clear the tabloids will link him to the one club back in his native country, capable of paying top dollar for him.

Fresh reports from Canal+ via Goal say Kante is one of two midfielder PSG are considering to buy next summer, with Fabinho also mentioned.

The report goes on to say Chelsea’s midfielder is rather the sole priority next summer to replace Thiago Motta.

Kante has been a revelation in England since he moved to the Premier League in 2015. His impact at Leicester City and Chelsea in their title winning campaigns cannot be underestimated and he will likely be involved heavily if Chelsea will repeat any more historic feats before he leaves for greener pastures.
