Chelsea are reportedly bracing themselves for offers from Juventus and Real Madrid for midfielder N’Golo Kante.
The France international has long been considered a target Los Blancos, who have money to spend this summer following an underwhelming campaign this time around.
Despite being fielded out of position under Maurizio Sarri, used in a right of centre role in midfield, Kante agreed to sign a new deal in November that makes him one of the best-paid players in the Premier League.
Tuttosport claims that Real still hold a serious interest in the 27-year-old, however, and Juventus are also now in the running to sign him.
Juve have already agreed a deal to sign Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal when his contract expires in the summer, but the Italian giants supposedly want a new holding player to complete their squad.
Kante has appeared 35 times for Chelsea in all competitions this season and was part of France’s triumphant World Cup squad last year.
