Chelsea star is open to an exit as rumours suggest that a Serie A club has shown interest to land the Frenchman
Chelsea has had a fruitful time in the present transfer window as the club managed to rack in some of the big names of European football. The Blues were able to spend hefty sums for the likes of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, and Ben Chilwell.
The club has also had its share of departures which include selling players like Willian and Alvaro Morata. There have been reports which state N’Golo Kante could be shown the exit door in the ongoing transfer window. Inter Milan has been touted as the possible destination for the French international.
The Nerazzurri are looking to bolster their midfield and are in talks with the former Leicester midfielder over a potential move to San Siro. Antonio Conte has worked with the Frenchman during his previous stint at the Stamford Bridge.
Kante has had an average campaign with the Blues last season as the midfielder made only 22 appearances in the Premier League scoring three goals. The midfielder was sidelined with muscle and ankle injuries last season missing out on 16 league games that has also been another reason for his dip in form.
Meanwhile, Chelsea is looking to bring in a replacement for the Frenchman as the Blues have opened talks with West Ham over a potential transfer for Declan Rice. The Englishman has been excellent for the Hammers and has emerged to be one of the star players of the East London-based club.
“I don’t expect anything in the window, because they are our players and that’s a fact. Yes we have a big squad we know that, but at the moment the players remain ours and we’ll see how things go as the time goes on,”-Lampard when asked about Kante transfer rumours.
The move for Kante has not picked up pace yet as Inter hasn’t made a formal bid for the player and on the other hand, Chelsea too has not been able to scoop out a deal for Declan Rice.
