Juventus interest in Kante should not cause panic – yet

Ben Jacobs has today reported that Juventus have a “superficial” interest in Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante, whose contract expires at the end of the summer.

He notes that there are plenty of other teams – including PSG – interested in trying to pick up Kante on a free transfer.

Now 31, Kante has shown himself on many occasions to be one of the best midfielders in the world.

In all honesty, this kind of thing isn’t worth a second though. Every major club in Europe will be weighing up a move for Kante, given his contract situation. But it will all be “superficial” at this point as it isn’t yet clear whether he will be signing a new deal at Chelsea.

Kante is out injured at the moment, continuing a horrible run of problems for the Frenchman. Nobody – including Chelsea – will be offering too much until it’s clear his body is up to it.
