Chelsea to complete the transfer of N’Golo Kante

The wait for Chelsea fans is finally over. According to RMC’s journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, the Blues have completed the transfer of Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante.

Chelsea will put €36 million (£30 million) on the table for the 25-year-old France international, who will sign a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge after completing his medical. That one is expected to happen within 48 hours.

The defensive midfielder has become one of the most-sought-after players in Europe following his exploits in the league-winning season with the Foxes.

The likes of Chelsea, Real Madrid, Juventus, Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Shanghai SIPG had all reportedly expressed their interests in the player.

A figure Chelsea transchended in order to secure the services of the 25-year-old defensive midfielder.
