Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport understands that Italian champions Juventus have joined the chase for Leicester City star N’Golo Kante.
The Frenchman has emerged as one of Europe’s hottest commodities following an outstanding maiden season in English Premier League, with Real Madrid, Chelsea and Arsenal all hot on his trail.
And it appears that Juventus are keen on his services as well, having contacted the player’s representatives to enquire about his wage demands.
Clubs from outside of English Premier League will be able to speak directly to the player if they trigger a €25 million release clause, which does not seem like a lot to pay for such an impressive footballer.
After setting England alight with his performances, Kante slotted effortlessly into the France national team and is now a regular starter after Lassana Diarra was forced to withdraw through injury.
Leicester City officials are eager to keep hold of their star player after doing well to persuade Jamie Vardy not to join league rivals Arsenal.
