N’Golo Kante looks to be on the move as he’s set to reject a new contract with Leicester City and favours a switch to Chelsea over Arsenal or Manchester United, according to the Telegraph.

Kante has just come off the back of a sensational debut season in England having helped Leicester clinch a shock Premier League title win following his move from FC Caen last summer.

The 25-year-old’s stunning form has led to strong interest from a number of English clubs with the Telegraph claiming that Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are among those who are battling-it-out for his signature.

Leicester are obviously desperate to try and keep hold of the French international and are hoping he will follow striker Jamie Vardy in signing a new lucrative contract extension with the club, but the newspaper suggests that Kante is set to reject the Foxes advances and push for a move.

And interestingly, the Telegraph claim that Chelsea is understood to be the midfielders preferred destination ahead of Arsenal or United as he’s supposedly keen to work under incoming boss Antonio Conte – although he hasn’t ruled out a move to either the Emirates or Old Trafford just yet.

Conte is posed to officially take over at Stamford Bridge when he fulfills his duties with Italy at Euro 2016 and he seemingly views Kante as the ideal addition to his new-look midfield next season.

The report indicates that the Frenchman has a £20m buyout clause in his contract but clubs could decide to bid over that figure to secure Kante’s signature as Leicester are free to accept the highest bid over that set fee.

It’s suggested that this is the reason that clubs such as Chelsea, Arsenal and United have been reluctant to make the first move as they fear it will trigger a bidding war, so they are patiently waiting to see who blinks first.

Whoever does end up signing Kante, should he leave the King Power, would be getting a superb deal as he’s developed in to one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe over the past 12 months and is proving it again for France at the Euro’s.

For now it looks as though Chelsea are in pole position but I wouldn’t rule out Arsenal or United just yet as Arsene Wenger is a known fan of the player while Jose Mourinho could see him as his ‘new Claude Makelele’ at Old Trafford.

    He knows Chelski will pay him a stupid amount of money. That is the only reason he would choose those scumbags. No champions league next chelski.

    If N’Golo Kante prefer to sign for Chelsea over Arsenal that means , Wenger now can not attract and not convincing even to the french players. Arsenal has better stadiuum and better training facilities than Chelsea. Arsenal are playing in the champion league next year while Chelsea are not. N’Golo Kante release close is 20 million pounds for all clubs the only reason remain is that he does not want to play for Arsene Wenger and he is not alone.

    N’golo Kante may prefer Chelsea or more likely, it is bullshiatsu issued by either Chelsea, tryign to keep the price down or by Kante’s agent, trying to get the transfer moving.

    Arsenal are not going to sgn Kante. They signed their midfield rock in Granit Xhaka. The Gunners are not going to sign two players in the same position. They now have ample defensive midfield options in Coquelin, Elneny, Chambers, and Xhaka. The Central mifield role will go to a combination of Ramsey, Wilshire, Cazorla, or Jon Toral.
