FC Barcelona Planning Move For Third Chelsea Star?
Chelsea stars Willian and Eden Hazard have both been linked with Spanish giants FC Barcelona over the past week, but a new report suggests that they are not the only Stamford Bridge stars being monitored by the Blaugrana.
According to Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, the 2017/18 LaLiga champions are preparing a bid for France international N'Golo Kante.
The Catalan club has already signed Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo and defender Clement Lenglet in this transfer window, but have also lost Andres Iniesta and Paulinho, while Andre Gomes is also expected to leave.
It is believed that Ernesto Valverde's side are considering offering out-of-favour Portugal international Gomes to the London club as part of a deal for Kante.
The 27-year-old Frenchman, who has won two Premier League titles in his career so far, helped France beat Croatia 4-2 in the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Moscow on Sunday.
The former Caen made 48 appearances for the Blues last season, scoring one goal and assisting a further two strikes.
