N’Golo Kante doesn’t want to exit Chelsea this summer despite interest from Inter Milan who are keen to hire his services, according to Goal.com.
The 29-year-old is interested to stay at Stamford Bridge as he is settled in London, however, a big offer from the Italian side could tempt the Blues to sell their player.
The Pensioners boss Frank Lampard hasn’t said that he wants the player out despite making several top signings this summer.
The English manager handed the experienced midfielder the captaincy in the club’s recent games because Cesar Azpilicueta is currently unavailable due to injury.
Kante is currently on international duty with the Netherlands team facing Poland and Italy in their upcoming Nations League matches.
Following an injury-hit last campaign which saw him missing about fifty per cent of the matches for the Blues, the World Cup winner is now said to be in good health.
Even though his injury was a big cause for concern, Lampard maintained his statement that he wants to keep the 29-year-old.
“He is an incredible player, I keep saying it and I mean it, he is huge for this club,” He said in June. “He has been huge and he will be for a long time and I am happy with him.
“It is not just about N’Golo. I have got other midfield players and a lot of competition in midfield but at the moment, N’Golo is doing a really good job there.”
Meanwhile, Inter’s boss Antonio Conte’s interest comes from his time at Stamford Bridge from 2016 to 2018, which saw the English side winning the Premier League title and the FA Cup.
The Serie A side are reportedly not in a situation to pay huge fees for bringing new players, with the San Siro club looking to sell many fringe players ahead of the 2020-21 season.
