Chelsea Transfer News : Blues Willing To Triple Wages For Leicester’s Kante
Chelsea have set their eyes on Leicester City’s ever running midfielder N’Golo Kante and are willing to triple his wages in order to lure him away from King Power Stadium.
Kante has a £20 million release clause in his current contract, which the Stamford Bridge based club are willing to pay.
The Blues are also ready to triple Kante’s current £35,000-per-week wages.
Leicester are reported to have given up on the hopes of keeping hold of the player after the player attracted interest from some of Europe’s top club.
The Foxes have already identified Kante’s replacement and are eyeing a move for French club Nice’s 23-year old Nampalys Mendy.
While Chelsea’s incoming boss Antonio Conte wants to line up Kante with Belgian international Radja Nainggolan.
Chelsea have already had a couple of offers rejected for the Roma playmaker, but the Blues have been adamant with their pursuit of the 28-year old.
Though Nainggolan has spoken against a move to England, as he was reported as saying “Going to Chelsea would be an opportunity, as I’d improve as a player and in economic terms. But money isn’t the most important thing and I don’t think I could improve my current quality of life.
“I built my home in Rome, where the sun always shines. Giving all this up would be difficult. Life isn’t just football. Can you see me in England, where it rains all the time?”
