Juventus to swoop for Chelsea midfielder

Juventus plan swoop for Kante

Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri is reportedly keen on a reunion with Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

Sarri worked with the Frenchman during the previous season at Stamford Bridge where the midfielder was handed with an attacking role under his management.

According to The Mail, the Bianconeri boss is still keen on reinforcing the midfield department and Kante has been earmarked as a suitable target for the 2020 summer transfer window.

The same publication claims that the Turin giants will make an offer of around £70m and the same should be sufficient to tempt the Blues to sanction the midfielder's sale.

Juventus have followed the trend of signing high-profile players on Bosman deals and Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot were pursued to strengthen the options in the centre of the park last summer.

Kante has been a regular for the Blues since his move from Leicester City in the summer of 2016 but he has recently been in-and-out of the starting lineup due to a few niggles.
