N’GOLO KANTE is said to have been offered a surprise move to either Arsenal or Tottenham.
The midfielder has only played twice for Chelsea this season because he has been hurt so much.
At the end of the season, Kante’s contract at Stamford Bridge will be up.
Foot Mercato says that the Blues have “absolutely no plans” to sign him to a new deal.
Because of how often the 31-year-old gets hurt, Chelsea doesn’t want to sign him to a new contract. Kante’s current deal pays him reportedly £170,000 per week.
But the French player who won the World Cup wants to stay in London.
Because of this, it is said that his agents tried to sell him to both Arsenal and Tottenham.
At the end of the season, he will be free to go wherever he wants. In January, he will be able to talk to clubs overseas about a pre-contract agreement.
But reports say that Kante’s only real choice is to move to one of Chelsea’s two biggest rivals.
A controversial move to Spurs would bring him back together with Antonio Conte, who was his coach at Chelsea.
During Kante’s seven years with Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain tried to sign him more than once. They still want to get him.
Kante, on the other hand, is not thought to want to join the French champions.
He hasn’t played since August 14 because he hurt his hamstring and can’t play right now.
The midfielder is back to full training and almost ready to play again, but he has had a lot of problems with injuries, so the Blues are happy to let him go when his contract is up.
Kante has played 262 times for Chelsea since he joined Leicester in 2015. In his seven years at Stamford Bridge, he has won both the Champions League and the Premier League.
