Barcelona offer star player to Chelsea in exchange for Kante

Kante has been brilliant for France at the World Cup

According to Sky, the player has become the subject of a player-plus-cash offer from La Blaugrana, who are said to have inserted Andre Gomes as the makeweight in question.

Gomes, who failed to make an impression after moving from Valencia in 2016, will be allowed to leave the club this summer.

Chelsea are unlikely to want to lose one of their prized assets.

It is understood that the Catalan powerhouse have already proposed an offer to Chelsea and are awaiting a response.

The La Liga champions are in the market for midfielders following Paulinho's and Andres Iniesta's departure from the Nou Camp. The former Spanish worldwide called an end to his illustrious career at the end of last season, leaving Blaugrana a bit shallow in that area of the pitch.

Last season, the Frenchman was the only bright spark in an otherwise dire season for Chelsea.

Chelsea are braced for transfer approaches for Kante this summer after the midfielder's star showing at the World Cup.

Kante is presently with the France national side at the World Cup where he has been their most influential player.

The Italian worldwide completed his medicals in London as he joins his former Napoli coach, Mauricio Sarri, who was also unveiled as manager of the Blues.
