Inter want to loan N’Golo Kante from Chelsea before eventually buying him reports the Daily Star. Inter have been evidently interested in N’Golo Kante for a while now. Conte brought the Frenchman to Stamford Bridge from Leicester back when he was in charge of Chelsea. Kante is a key part of Chelsea under Frank Lampard. But, the World Cup winner has struggled due to a series of injuries. N’Golo hasn’t been at his best for a while now.
The Daily Star further adds that the French holding midfielder is on top of Conte’s transfer list. Conte has asked the Inter management to sign him at all costs.
The Inter manager and management have been under fire from the fans after missing out on Sandro Tonali. The two parties had even agreed on personal terms. But, Inter backed out on the last moment sighting his €35M price tag. What’s more hurting is the fact that Milan are all set to sign the youngster.
Conte’s transfer approach has changed after his meeting with club President Zhang. Inter have moved their focus to experienced and seasoned professionals this summer. This change can be attributed to the fact that Inter want to win the Scudetto this season at all costs.
Inter want to loan N’Golo Kante but will Chelsea agree?
Chelsea are spending huge this summer thanks to their savings during the transfer ban. The Premier League club is giving Frank Lampard his players after all. But, they’ll still need to balance the books to avoid another FFP breach. Thus, they can give the idea of loaning Kante out a thought.
Inter want to loan N’Golo Kante desperately. But, Chelsea would want to ensure that they get a good sum out of the World Cup winner. The entire loan saga revolves around the fact that Inter want to spread their spending across two summer windows. And N’Golo Kante is no cheap buy. Chelsea have valued the Frenchman at €50M which is way out of Inter’s reach at the moment. If Inter does manage to loan in N’Golo Kante it will be a big boost to the side on the field. The Frenchman knows how Conte’s system works and that’ll be an added advantage.
