Juventus join the hunt for Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante
There has been numerous midfielders linked with Juventus in past few months.
The reports in Italy suggested that Juventus have joined the hunt for Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.
The 29-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Chelsea spent 35.8 million euros to sign the France international from Leicester City in the summer of 2016. The 29-year-old has a valid contract with Chelsea until June 2023.
This season, Kante has scored 3 goals in 22 appearances for Chelsea.
The 29-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in France. Kante has scored one goal in 39 matches for France at senior level.
Maurizio Sarri wants to sign a new midfielder and Kante is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Sarri is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.
There is no doubt that N’Golo Kante will take Juventus’s midfield to a different level.
According to the report, “Maurizio Sarri would like a reunion with Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante at Juventus, it’s reported, but there’s competition from PSG and Real Madrid. According to the Daily Mail and Calciomercato.it, Chelsea are open to selling Kante in the summer, as he struggled this season to replicate his previous form. While reports in England and France point towards Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid engaging in a transfer duel, Italian sources insist Juventus are in the race too. It would allow Kante to reunite with Sarri, even though many Chelsea fans criticised the coach for changing the midfielder’s position at Stamford Bridge. Juve could enact an exchange deal involving Miralem Pjanic, Daniele Rugani or Alex Sandro.”
