N'Golo Kante is reportedly now a transfer target of Inter Milan as Chelsea look to raise more funds for their summer transfers, reports claim.

The Frenchman has endured an injury-plagued season and Italian news media outlet Calciomercarto claims Antonio Conte is interested in working with Kante again.

Conte won the Premier League in his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge and Kante played a key role in his successful campaign.

Inter have more or less lost the title to Juventus as they slipped further by seven points following their 0-0 draw with Fiorentina.

And the Italian gaffer is looking to bolster his squad in a bid to compete with the Serie A title next season and Conte has rated Kante as one of the best players he has ever managed.

Speaking to Sky Sports back in May, Conte said: "In my opinion, he [Kante] can play in any position in midfield. We are talking about an amazing player.

"He is fantastic with the ball, without the ball. When you have N’Golo in your team, you can think you are playing with one player more.

"You can find a smile on his face every day. He is a very positive guy and one of the best players I have had in my career as a manager."

Conte signed Victor Moses on loan from Chelsea back in January, and he has the option to make the deal with the 29-year-old permanent.

Inter are said to be in negotiations with another Chelsea star Emerson Palmieri, who Conte brought to Stamford Bridge for around £18.2m in 2018.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that N'Golo Kante could be released in the summer by Chelsea to help fund the transfer of Benchilwell and Kai Havertz.

The Stamford Bridge outfit have already completed the signing of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and the Blues are also keen on signing Leicester City and Bayer Leverkusen stars.

And according to Times, Chelsea know the pursuit for Chilwell and Havertz will not come cheap and will consider selling Kante.
