€70m-rated midfielder could leave Chelsea next summer

The London giants could reportedly be ready to offload N’Golo Kante if it helps them afford a deal to sign West Ham United star Declan Rice. This looks like a risky strategy, but there’s no doubt Declan looks one of the best teenagers in the PL right now and like someone who could be a major asset to a top-six club.

France international, meanwhile, has seen his influence wane slightly of late, and the Daily Star name him as a footballer who could be likely to make way for England international if Chelsea revive their interest. It’s widely documented that the Blues were in for the Englishman during the summer.

This deal never materialised, but it might be that the London giants now need to make sales before bringing in further additions due to the amount they spent on the likes of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell over the summer.

England international coming in next could be great business by the Blues, and ex-Hammers left-back Paul Konchesky recently said why his old club surely accept they’ll be losing him soon.

“I think the club know if they or Declan go on to having a good season, then maybe it’s only a matter of time before someone comes in to make a bid for him,” he said.
