Chelsea are lining up a summer move for Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante, according to the Mirror.
The Blues are huge admirers of the twenty-four year old, who has been on of the stand out players for the surprise Premier League leaders this season, with his performances even leading to comparisons with former Chelsea great Claudio Makelele.
Kante has played in all but one of Claudio Ranieri’s sides league games so far this season with his one and only goal so far coming in a 2-1 win over Watford back in November.
The East Midlands side are keen to secure his services, and are set to offer him a new deal in an attempt to deter Chelsea and any other potential suitors.
Leicester currently sit five points clear at the top of the table ahead of Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace where the away win is priced at 6/4.
