Antonio Conte wants Chelsea midfielder at Inter Milan

Kante wanted by Conte?

Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte is reportedly planning a surprise move to sign N'Golo Kante from Chelsea during this summer's transfer window.

Conte was responsible for recruiting Kante for the Blues in July 2016 and he played a key role in the club winning the 2016/17 Premier League title.

Kante has continued to remain an influential figure in the midfield when fit, but there has still been the constant speculation regarding his future with the west London side.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Conte is keen on a reunion with the France international as he aims to put together a squad capable of challenging Juventus for the title next season.

Kante has struggled with injuries this term and that has restricted him to only 27 appearances across all competitions. Still, he is regarded highly by Frank Lampard, who described him as one of the world's best in his position.

The Frenchman has three years left on his Chelsea contract.
