France international N'golo Kante has reportedly hinted that he is open to reuniting with former boss Antonio Conte at Inter Milan.
The duo worked together to help Chelsea win Premier League and FA Cup titles during the Italian manager's reign at Stamford Bridge.
He was also part of the Blues team that conquered Europe and win the Europa League after the triumph over Arsenal two seasons ago.
The Frenchman has however lost his dominance at the club since the arrival of Frank Lampard, coupled with the injuries he suffered last campaign.
Conte is now hoping he can secure the services of the 2018 World Cup winner this transfer window as reported by Express UK quoting Italian newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport.
Kante's current deal with Chelsea expires in the summer of 2023, but he could leave the Bridge earlier than expected.
Reports claim the Italian boss is exploiting his relationship with the Frenchman while in England to lure him to Italy this transfer window.
The Blues were said to have placed a £65 million price tag on the midfielder earlier this summer but that can no longer stand with Italian news outfit saying the Premier League side will entertain talks in the range of £46m.
Meanwhile, Lampard recently admitted that he wouldn’t sell Kante and added that the Frenchman remains part of to his Stamford Bridge project.
“I think pretty much every club in the world would want N'Golo Kante,” Lampard told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I have seen those reports as well. He is an incredible player and person and I certainly don't want to lose him. He's fundamental in terms of what I'm trying to do.
“We can obviously talk about the attacking players we have but someone like N'Golo and the work he does in midfield... It was a difficult year for him last year because of the injuries.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigeria international Ola Aina has joined newly-promoted Premier League outfit Fulham on a season-long loan from Torino.
The Cottagers also have an option to make his move permanent in a deal around £11m provided he impressed at the end of his temporary stay this coming season.
Aina made 37 appearances across competitions Marco Giampaolo's side creating three assists in the process as they narrowly escaped relegation from the Serie A last campaign.
