Chelsea make N’Golo Kante decision as Thomas Tuchel closes in on key signing ahead of new season

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is set to be offered a new contract at Stamford Bridge which will extend his stay beyond 2023.

The French World Cup star has two years remaining on his current deal with the club so there is no immediate pressure to rush through an agreement.

According to Italian football journalist, Fabrizio Romano, Kante will be offered a new deal by Chelsea in the coming months but there is “no rush” due to the relationship between the two parties.

“He wanted to stay last summer after some ‘complicated’ weeks and two bids received, Chelsea want to reward Kanté.”

Signed from Leicester City in 2016, the French midfielder has been a virtual ever-present for the Blues under a number of different managers.
