Juventus are eyeing Chelsea star N’Golo Kante as a possible replacement for Miralem Pjanic, according to a report.

Italian outlet CalcioMercato claims that the Serie A champions have made Kante their number one choice should Pjanic leave Turin this summer.

Several reports have linked Pjanic with a move to Manchester City after they missed out on Jorginho, who joined Chelsea instead.

Juve will now apparently battle it out with Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain for Kante, but the report claims that Chelsea will demand €80million (£71m) for the France international.

Italian transfer expert Gianluca di Marzio recently claimed that Barcelona are targeting the former Leicester man as one of their priorities for the summer transfer window.

According to the Daily Express, the Blues are keen on tying down the long-term future of the France international by offering him a £200k-a-week deal.
