Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante, and could offer Andre Gomes in return.

If you told Kante a few years ago that he’d be attracting interest from a club like Barcelona, he probably would have laughed in your face.

When the 2014 World Cup took place, Kante was preparing to embark on his first ever season in the French top-flight with Caen.

Fast forward four-years, he’s a cornerstone in the France side that is the overwhelming favourite to win the competition, as well as having two Premier League titles to his name.

His meteoric rise to the top of the football world appears to have no intention of slowing up. He may well be off to the Nou Camp this summer.

Sky Italy report that Barcelona are chasing Kante. They are thought to be prepared to offer us Andre Gomes in return, which ought to deduct a couple of million off of the £200M they’re presumably going to offer on top.

Kante’s going nowhere. He’s shown no willingness to leave, and we’re certain that Maurizio Sarri is excited to see what he can do with him.
