Nerazzurri are interested in a possible swoop for Blues midfielder N’Golo Kante this summer. It’s claimed that the two-time PL winner would consider a departure in the next transfer window after a difficult campaign with Chelsea.
However, it’s added that Antonio Conte’s hopes of reuniting with the defensive midfielder could be scuppered as Inter would find it hard to match France international’s £150,000-a-week wages.
It’s particularly stated that Conte would find it tough to convince the San Siro outfit’s board to offer such a pay packet for the star, who is contracted with the London giants until the summer of 2023.
Antonio Conte has already spearheaded some serious recruitment at San Siro over the last year, high-profile moves for Romelu Lukaku, Christian Eriksen have now been followed by the addition of Achraf Hakimi.
Alexis Sanchez (loan), Ashley Young and Victor Moses have all also joined from the Premier League.
N’Golo has been limited to only 27 appearances for Blues this campaign due to constant injury troubles, the midfielder is still one of the best defensive midfielders in the world though and the Blues should carefully consider before they decide to sell the star.
The signing of N’Golo would undoubtedly provide Inter with the opportunity to better challenge Juventus for the Serie A title next campaign, as well as hopes of success in the UCL.
