Kante was one of the best defensive midfielders at the recently concluded events with an impressive tackle rate.

Stoke City's Jack Butland is also an option for the Blues as he could be available for around £20 million, but Chelsea will prefer to have Pickford after an impressive World Cup performance for the Three Lions.
The Sun say the 24-year-old would cost £60 million, however, he is seen as a long-term solution and may be tempted to join.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Chelsea are demanding a sum of £88 million from any club that are interested in signing Frenchman N'Golo Kante this summer.
