Kante, however, still has three years to run on his contract at Chelsea and he will be difficult to prise away from Stamford Bridge, as he is regarded as perhaps the club’s most important player alongside Eden Hazard.
Kante was bought from Leicester in the summer of 2016 after helping the Foxes to the Premier League title, and he was named PFA Player of the Year in 2016/17 as Chelsea secured won the league championship.
He made his international debut in 2016 and helped France to the final of that year’s European Championship, and he’s now preparing to represent Les Bleus at the World Cup.
