Chelsea look to sign former player, favourites to land Leicester star

Chelsea are competing with Manchester United for their former midfielder Lassana Diarra. The 31-year-old, who has also played for Arsenal and Real Madrid during his career, has rediscovered his best form after joining Ligue 1 side Marseille last season.

Consequently, beINSports journalist Johnny Severin has claimed that both Premier League clubs have tabled offers for the France international, who has three years left on his contract with his current club. Serie A giants Inter Milan are also said to be interested in the player.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are reportedly leading the pursuit of Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante.

Kante, who played a significant role in the Foxes’ title triumph last season, has attracted interests from clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Juventus. However, according to the Telegraph, the 25-year-old favours a move to Stamford Bridge as he wants to play under Antonio Conte.

The France international, who arrived at Leicester in a £5 million move from FC Caen last summer, reportedly has a £20 million buy-out clause in his contract with the Foxes.
