Chelsea are optimistic that midfielder N’Golo Kante will pen down a new long-term contract to remain at Stamford Bridge.
The former Leicester midfielder whose rare feat ensured his moving to Stamford Bridge is yet to
commit to a Chelsea stay.
The France World Cup winner, who attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona in
the summer, has over two-and-a-half years remaining on his present deal at Stamford Bridge.
Furthermore,Sportsfora.com understands the Blues are poised to keep Kante and have no interest in selling him, with talks over a new contract ongoing.
The 27-year-old joined Chelsea from then-Premier League champions Leicester in July 2016 and
helped the Blues win the title in his first campaign.
Even more, Kante has started every Premier League match this season under new head coach Maurizio Sarri, who has deployed him in a new attacking midfield role.
And he has made 105 appearances in total since joining from Leicester, scoring four goals.
Chelsea are strong contenders for the premier league title this season but with an eye on the January transfer window.
