N’golo Kante’s agent is keen for the Chelsea star to move to his homeland with PSG looking for Defensive midfielders.
Paris Saint-Germain are keen to bolster their defensive midfield options, after Thiago Motta’s retirement and Lassana Diarra’s age catching up fast. They are supposedly looking at N’golo Kante and Julian Weigl as per Paris United.
The French news outlet has come out with reports claiming that the Kante’s agent has been conversing with Antero Henrique, PSG’s sporting director, and the man is keen to see his client swap England for France. It further states that the Blues might be looking to offload the midfielder at around €80 million euros, as they look to restructure their own midfield under a new manager, possibly Maurizio Sarri.

Kante has been nothing short of phenomenal on the British Isles, taking Leicester City to a fairytale title and winning it again with Chelsea next season. This has seen him being hailed as the best in business and with an eye for a tackle and bundles of energy, it’s hard to argue otherwise. Kante is seen racking up the defensive numbers and nailed down a spot in the supremely talented French midfield. The lack of a Champions league might be a telling factor in this deal with the player wanting to compete for the biggest prizes.
This would be a welcome adding to the PSG side who are looking short in defensive qualities in midfield and in defence with Thiago Silva expected to leave the club after expressing his feelings over the frequent managerial changes. This would also free up the creative Marco Verrati who looked unimpressive during the season concluded.
The fact that Chelsea cannot offer Champions League football is a major problem for the Londoners in the pursuit to keep their stars. It’s easy to see why Thomas Tuchel would want to add a defensive midfielder of Kante’s quality and would further boost his chances of lifting the biggest prize which would confirm the recognition of PSG as a dominant force in Europe. The Premier league would lose a unique asset if the Parisian club have their say, as often the case has been.
