Reports in France today suggest that a deal has been reached for Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante to join Chelsea for next season.
The 25-year-old was an integral part of the Foxes’ title winning side last season and also played a part in France’s run to the final of EURO 2016.
According to Le Parisien, Kante will join up with new boss Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge on a five-year deal.
Kante still has three years to run on his existing Leicester contract, hence the high price for a player who cost just £5.6 million last August.
He missed just one league game during the 2015/16 campaign and was named as part of the Premier League PFA Team of the Year.
