Barcelona eye Kante deal with Andre Gomes included

France star N'Golo Kante GETTYBarcelona are looking at a deal for N'Golo Kante

Following the departures of Andres Iniesta and Paulinho, Barcelona are desperate to snatch N'Golo Kante from Chelsea.

The midfielder has been brilliant so far for France at this summer's World Cup, leading Les Blues to the finals on Sunday against newbies Croatia.

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. But, of course, given his rise as the best defensive midfielder in Europe, Chelsea are sure to have a few offers for his services before the transfer window shuts this summer.

According to "Sky Sports Italy" Barcelona have made an offer for the Chelsea midfielder, with a cash-plus-player offer.

Arsenal have been credited with interest and could make a move for the player, yet - per the latest reports - Barca would rather trade Gomes for Kante along with what should still be a hefty sum.

Chelsea will not want to lose Kante, who is seen as the single most important figure in their midfield. 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.
