Chelsea is worried about losing N’Golo Kante to Arsenal according to a report on 90mins.
The French midfielder is in the final season of his current deal at the West London club.
He wants to stay and the Blues are trying their best to keep him in their squad as well, but talks about an extension is not making as much progress as they would have wanted.
Kante has been plagued by injuries in the last few seasons and the midfielder is set to miss a few more months of this season.
Chelsea hopes to find an agreement with him, but the report reveals they dread the idea that he might leave them to move to Arsenal or Tottenham.
Either north London side will make good use of his experience to boost their chance of winning the Premier League.
Now, except Arsenal and Arteta, according to ElChiringuitoEnFOX, Barcelona boss Xavi is an admirer of Kante and the Catalan giants may make a move for the midfielder in the coming months. With Jorginho’s contract also expiring next summer, Todd Boehly has a number of important decisions to make between now and the summer transfer window.
Kante has been quizzed on his future in the past, and spoke about it earlier this year. The Frenchman told Sky Sports: “Yes, since I came here I’ve spent many great seasons, with the team, the managers and the fans.
“I hope we can carry on like this, keep winning, and that’s the way I see the future.”
France and Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has been ruled out of the World Cup in Qatar after having an operation on a hamstring injury.
Kante, 31, suffered the injury during Chelsea’s 2-2 home draw with Tottenham on 14 August.
In a statement, the club said that the procedure was a success but Kante is expected to be sidelined for four months.
