Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have expressed their optimism ahead of the debut campaign under Antonio Conte, as they feel the Italian can lead them to success.
The Daily Mirror state Chelsea are prepared to treble the wages of Leicester City star N’Golo Kante, if he rejects the approaches of Paris Saint-Germain and other interested parties to seal a move to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are ready to activate the France international’s £20m release-clause and want to partner the Premier League Team of the Year midfielder with Roma’s Radja Nainggolan, as Conte eyes a new-look midfield.
However, Chelsea face vast competition to lure Kante from the Foxes clutches and their lack of Champions League football may make things difficult- but they’re prepared to treble the star’s current £35k-a-week wages to get a deal across the line.
Our landlord believes we’re on the brink of a mass exodus from Leicester City, with Jamie Vardy in discussions with Arsenal and Riyad Mahrez more than likely following him out the exit door.
