Leicester City have been the surprise package of the Premier League during the current campaign and it is little surprise to see some of their standout performers attracting attention from bigger clubs.
One player who has slipped under the radar when it comes to handing out superlatives is defensive midfielder N’Golo Kante, with the Foxes fans here in the Transfer Tavern delighted with the signing of the little Frenchman.
One Leicester die-hard has spotted some potentially upsetting news in today’s Metro however, with Kante himself refusing to rule out the possibility of a summer switch away from the King Power Stadium.
Chelsea are keen and have been linked with a £25 million bid for the combative midfielder, who said: “I will fight for Leicester this season.
“Next season we never know and we will see. At this moment I am with Leicester, but I don’t mind being linked with other clubs.”
One Chelsea fan is buzzing about this news and has raced to the bar to get himself a celebratory pint. He thinks Kante would be an astute signing for the Blues, given that he now boasts a year of Premier League football under his belt.
Leicester fans, how integral is Kante to your fortunes? Can the club move forward without him?
