Premier League champions Leicester City have offered influential midfielder N’Golo Kante a new bumper £100,000 per-week deal, as they try to tempt him to stay at the King Power Stadium.
The Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been alerted to this news in The Daily Mail and they remain confident that their club will have enough pulling power to see him complete a £30 million move to West London.
The France midfielder was a vital player for the Foxes last season and his performances contributed heavily towards the club collecting their maiden Premier League crown.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is trying frantically to add to his Blues squad and a defensive midfielder is clearly a summer priority for the forthcoming campaign.
One Chelsea fan is sat chatting with the landlord here in the Transfer Tavern and he thinks that Kante turning down the Blues would be a clear lack of ambition, although he does concede that Leicester’s presence in the Champions League could be telling.
Leicester City fans, just how important is Kante to the club? Would you be sad to see him leave for Chelsea?
