N'Golo Kante: Identified early as a Conte target

Chelsea are ready to table a staggering £200k-a-week deal for one of their stars to ward off interest from PSG, a report claims.

According to the Daily Express on Wednesday, the Blues are keen on tying down the long-term future of France international star N’Golo Kante.

Kante has reeled off a string of impressive performances so far, including one in France’s 1-0 win over Belgium on Tuesday night which sent them to the World Cup final.

The former Leicester star has also become a key cog in Chelsea’s midfield since his £32million arrival from the Foxes two years ago.

Kante put pen to paper on a deal running until 2021, however the Chelsea board are keen on offering him a new five year contract, the Express claims.

They aim to him one of the highest paid players at the club, and will reportedly offer terms of £200k-a-week amid interest from PSG.

French outlet Le10Sport claimed on Tuesday that the sporting director of the Ligue 1 giants – Antero Henrique – is eyeing Kante for the PSG midfield, but knows he would demand around €12-15m (£10.6-13.2m) a year.
