Tottenham keen to land Chelsea star N’Golo Kante
Over the past couple of weeks, there has been intense speculation over the future of N’Golo Kante at Chelsea.
The reports in England suggested that Tottenham are keen to land Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.
Chelsea spent 35.8 million euros to sign the France international from Leicester in the summer of 2016. He has a valid contract with Chelsea until June 2023.
The midfielder has only featured in two matches this term in all competitions.
The 31-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in France. His record for France is impressive. Kante has scored two goals in 53 matches for France at senior level.
Adding a midfielder remains Tottenham’s top priority and Antonio Conte will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming months.
Conte is a long term admirer of Kante and believes he can get the most out of the France international.
The Spurs are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
There is no doubt that N’Golo Kante will take Tottenham’s midfield to a different level. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Tottenham boss Antonio Conte is keen on a reunion with Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante. The Daily Express says Conte is a big admirer of Chelsea’s Kante, and would like to bring the Frenchman to Tottenham next summer. The 31-year-old looks set to depart Stamford Bridge when his contract expires in June, and Spurs are readying an offer. The Lilywhites are likely to face competition from some of Europe’s big hitters including Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona. However, Kante has previously indicated a desire to remain in London, putting Conte in pole position to land his man.”
