Paris Saint-Germain are allegedly making Chelsea star N’Golo Kante their prime summer transfer target as they attempt to replace ageing Thiago Motta.
PSG want Kante badly
The Ligue 1giants could do with a top quality defensive midfielder to replace the veteran Italian midfield maestro, who has been a vital part of their team for the last few seasons.
The France international looks as good as any player to come in for Paris Saint Germain and help fix that role for them, though the Blues will certainly do all they can do hold on to important France international.
Le 10 Sport report of Paris Saint Germain’s interest in the hard working midfielder, but also suggest that they could run into stumbling blocks due to both Kante’s importance to the reigning champions and their own problems with Financial Fair Play rules.
Still, this is a sign of the Ligue 1 heavyweights’ ambition as they try to follow up an exciting summer transfer window last year with more big-name signings.
Neymar Jr. and France international Kylian Mbappe have both been huge successes in attack since being signed for large sums of money by the Frech side, and re-organizing in the middle and defence could be exactly what Unai Emery’s team need to take their team to the next level in European football.
