Chelsea ‘open to selling N’Golo Kante next summer’

Chelsea are reportedly open to the idea of selling N’Golo Kante during next summer’s transfer window.
The 30-year-old has been a key player for the Blues since arriving from Leicester City in 2016, making 224 appearances in all competitions, winning the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League during his time at Stamford Bridge.

Kante’s contract with Thomas Tuchel’s side is due to expire in June 2023, though, and according to Fichajes, Chelsea are considering allowing the France international to leave next year.

The report claims that the Blues are excited by young midfielders Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour, with both players seen as possible replacements for the World Cup winner.

Chelsea also allegedly believe that they could receive a sizeable sum for Kante amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, which would allow them to reinvest in their squad.

The former Boulogne youngster has scored once in six appearances for his London club at the start of the 2021-22 campaign.
