Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte brought N’golo Kante from Leicester City to Chelsea in 2016, and it is said that the Italian manager wants to reunite with the midfielder at San Siro.

The World Cup winner endured a difficult 2019/2020 season as he suffered a combination of injuries. He made 22 Premier League appearances for the Blues and scored three goals as Chelsea finished fourth on the Premier League table.
