Kante is set to be Chelsea’s second signing of the summer after Michy Batshuayi.
Premier League club Chelsea is closing in on sought-after midfielder N’Golo Kante, according to reports in French media.
RMC’s journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi tweeted: “Kante to Chelsea is done! Medical within 48 hours. 5-year-contract, €36m!”
The French midfielder, who joined Leicester in a £5.6m deal from Ligue 1 club Caen in the summer of 2015, was being chased by the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea, Juventus, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain, after his heroic contribution in the Foxes’ title winning campaign.
However, if reports are to be believed, new Blues boss Antonio Conte has won the race to complete one of the best transfers of the summer.
