Three Inter Milan players set to fund £60m transfer for Chelsea ace N’Golo Kante

Inter Milan are reportedly willing to let three players leave as they look to raise funds in order to sign N’Golo Kante.

Kante has been linked with a departure from Chelsea with Blues boss Frank Lampard having splashed out on new signings this summer.

Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr have all been brought in by Lampard.

With Havertz and Ziyech potentially taking up midfield roles, it may have left the Stamford Bridge exit door open for Kante.

Inter boss Antonio Conte is believed to be keen to reunite with Kante having signed the Frenchman for Chelsea back in 2016.

Though its believed the Blues want £60m for the holding midfielder and Inter could sell three players to raise the cash.

CalcioMercato claim Ivan Perisic, Joao Mario and Dalbert Henrique could all potentially leave the Serie A side.

Kante signed a new contract two years ago, keeping him at Stamford Bridge until 2023.

Transfer expert Ian McGarry said: "My understanding is that Kante is very much settled in England and would be resistant to leaving.

"His current contract with Chelsea is a very good one, it was upgraded two years ago.

"He's in no rush to leave Stamford Bridge or England for that matter.

"So that would be a persuasion on Chelsea's part as well as perhaps a payment, because he's not going to be asking for a transfer anytime soon."

And Lampard previously said: "I've said before about N'Golo, [he is] one of the best midfield players in the world. I actually would have loved to play with him, the type of player he is.

“He has everything, and coming back to Chelsea and managing this club, having N'Golo Kante, is something I really wanted to appreciate and work with.”
