According to reports, N’golo Kante of Chelsea has been contacted by French champions PSG about a potential free move.
The player’s future remains extremely unclear. according to 90min, although representatives from the Ligue 1 team have been in contact with him.
Since joining the Blues, the midfielder has without a doubt been a key component, winning the league in his debut season and turning in some of his best performances as they advanced to the 2021 Champions League final.
Kante has received nothing but praise from the club’s managers during his time there, with Thomas Tuchel calling him “a delight to coach.”
However, injuries have begun to plague the later stages of his time at Stamford Bridge, summed up well by the beginning of this campaign.
PSG Haunting For Kante:
He injured his hamstring against Tottenham in the second game of the year, and he hasn’t been able to rejoin the team since.
Although injuries have undoubtedly played a part, the club still seems hopeful that they can secure his future, despite rumors that they have had difficulty persuading him to stay based on the terms that are now being given to him.
This appears to have alerted rival large clubs, as 90 Minutes reports that PSG is looking into a deal.
Given that they should have no trouble regaining their league title this year, the French giants are undoubtedly looking to add the Champions League to their trophy collection.
Chelsea has to understand that Kante’s importance when healthy is unmatched, and that the midfield has been maybe their weakest position since the injury.
Although they will undoubtedly have to account for injuries, the club will have a difficult time finding someone to fill the Frenchman’s role in midfield when the summer transfer window opens.
