Paris Saint-Germain 'plotting big-money N'Golo Kante move'

Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly lining up a big-money move for Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante at the end of the season.

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly lining up a big-money move to bring N'Golo Kante back to France this summer.

Kante has established himself as one of the world's best midfielders since arriving in English football, helping Leicester City to the most unlikely of title triumphs in 2016 before moving to Chelsea and winning the trophy again one year later.

The 26-year-old was named the PFA Player and FWA Footballer of the Year for his performances last season, and reports in France now claim that PSG have made him one of their top targets.

The Ligue 1 leaders spent a world-record £200m fee on Neymar last summer and will shell out a further £166m to sign Kylian Mbappe on a permanent deal at the end of the current campaign, but their spending is not expected to stop there.

PSG are eager to replace veteran Thiago Motta in their midfield and believe that Kante would be an ideal signing to help them reach their ultimate goal of winning the Champions League.

However, Chelsea would be reluctant to lose the France international, who only joined for £30m 18 months ago.
