Because of Chelsea’s recent history with transfers, they are consistently linked with moves for all kinds of players.

Just in the last week, the Blues are rumoured to be interested in Anthony Martial, Christian Pulisic and Sandro Tonali.

And these links are made even though there are a huge amount of promising youngsters currently at the club.

But although transfer rumours are consistently circulated, getting N’Golo Kante to sign a new long-term contract must be Chelsea’s priority.

Since arriving from Leicester in 2016, Kante’s won the Premier League title and the FA Cup with the Blues.

He was even a vital member of France’s World Cup winning team.

And whilst at Leicester people may have thought his good season was a one-off, but at Chelsea, Kante has proven he is one of the world’s best midfielders.

Although Maurizio Sarri’s new tactics haven’t seen him shine yet, Kante seems to be the kind of player who will work hard to try and adapt.

Chelsea have reassured fans that they are confident on a new deal, which will be music to their ears.

Kante is the glue that’s held Chelsea’s team together for a while now, and any big club would want him.

That’s why no matter the price, the clubs hierarchy must ensure Kante remain’s in London for the foreseeable future.
