Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is being linked with interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

The France international won back-to-back Premier League titles and a World Cup with France by playing as a defensive midfielder. But Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has played him outside his favoured role and some outlets are suggesting PSG could exploit the situation with a summer bid.

Kante signed a new deal worth £290,000 a week only last November.

PSG have been under investigation by Uefa over possible Financial Fair Play irregularities. However, the French club were back splashing the cash last month when they shelled out €40million for Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Leandro Paredes. The thinking is that either they’ve been given the all-clear or they are already planning on spending a summer windfall from the sale of Neymar.

The French club are looking for a replacement for Adrien Rabiot who will leave PSG when his contract expires in the summer.
