Report: Inter want N’Golo Kante, Kai Havertz’ Chelsea deal face major setback

Inter Milan Antonio Conte wants to bring N’Golo Kante

Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is reportedly keen to bring Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante to San Siro.

Conte was in charge of the Blues when they signed Kante from Leicester City, and the France international played a key role in the London club winning the 2016-17 Premier League title.

Kante remains a key figure for Chelsea, but the 29-year-old’s future continues to be called into question, with Barcelona and Real Madrid both recently credited with an interest.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Inter boss is keen to reunite with the 2018 World Cup winner at San Siro as he attempts to put together a squad capable of wrestling the Serie A title away from Juventus.

Kante, who is currently battling to overcome a hamstring injury, has scored three times in 27 appearances for Frank Lampard’s side during the 2019-20 campaign.

The midfielder has a contract at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2023.

What Champions League qualifying mean for Chelsea to sign Kai Havertz’

Chelsea will reportedly have to qualify for next season’s Champions League to stand a chance of signing Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz this summer.

The speculation surrounding the 21-year-old’s future continues to gather pace, with Frank Lampard’s side thought to be leading the race to sign him ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

However, according to Bild journalist Christian Falk, the English club’s chances of signing the Germany international hinge on whether they can secure a spot in next season’s premier European competition.

The Blues are currently third in the Premier League table but fourth-placed Leicester City and fifth-placed Manchester United would both go above them if they were to win their games in hand on Sunday and Monday respectively.

Fifth could yet be enough to qualify for the 2020-21 Champions League, though, with Manchester City set to find out on Monday whether their appeal against a two-season European ban has been successful.
