Saudi Arabian club eyeing deal for Chelsea midfielder
Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr have their sights on signing Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante when his contract expires in the summer.
The Frenchman has been with the Blues for the past six-and-a-half years but could leave them on a free transfer at the end of the season.
He has been unsuccessful in negotiating a fresh deal and reports claim that he could make a lucrative move to the Middle East soon.
Al Nassr are currently on the verge of landing Cristiano Ronaldo in a mega-million deal and have identified Kante as the next target.
It remains to be seen whether Kante will be tempted by the proposal, considering his main target is to join Barcelona next term.
Talks are already underway between his agency and Barcelona and the Catalans are expected to open formal contract talks in January.
Kante is currently on the sidelines after a hamstring surgery and he is not expected to return to action until the beginning of March.
