Chelsea are willing on include France midfielder N’golo Kante in a swap deal offer for Real Madrid sensational winger Marco Asensio, according to report.
Chelsea are desperate to put together a formidable squad for the coming season and they have beamed their transfer searchlight on Asensio, who is enjoying blistering form this term.
The youngster shone for Los Blancos at the start of the season as he was fielded in the absence and position of the injured Gareth Bale. He returned to the bench when Bale returned from injury but the Spanish winger has once again worked his way into the first team of Zinedine Zidane.
According to Don Balon via COS, Kante has been added to Chelsea’s offer made to Real Madrid, and this is in a bid to land Marco Asensio.
Chelsea have a plethora of attacking midfielders like Asensio, which make no sense to include their best defensive midfielder in a possible deal. Knowing the source of the report, the fans of Chelsea have no cause of worry as this type of deal is highly unlikely.
Madrid have been linked with a move for Eden Hazard but it appears that they have withdrawn interest in the Belgian, with Neymar now heavily linked. Nonetheless, as the transfer window draws closer, it will become clearer who Chelsea will sign.
The report has further claimed that Chelsea are battling Man United, who have made a €100million bid, for Asensio.
United are on the cusp of losing Anthony Martial, with reports that the French star is unhappy and wants to leave United at the end of the season.
