Chelsea face a fight to retain the services of their key players in the final weeks of the transfer window, as a number of top European sides are eyeing a swoop.
Belgium duo Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois are both heavily linked with a switch to Real Madrid, while Barcelona continue to make advances to lure Willian to the Nou Camp – and Juventus have now entered the party, eyeing another member of the Blues’ squad.
CalcioMercato states the Serie A champions are eyeing a move for France World Cup winner N’Golo Kante as a potential replacement for Miralim Pjanic, who has been linked with a move to the Premier League with Manchester City.
Juventus have already spent heavily this summer to draft Cristiano Ronaldo to Turin from Real Madrid and a swoop for Kante would cost them at least €80m, the report adds.
27-year-old Kante was one of France’s best players in their 2018 World Cup success, which has led to interest from Paris Saint-Germain.
