Chelsea midfielder Kante waiting for Inter Milan to get serious

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante is waiting for Inter Milan to firm up their transfer interest.

Kante is “open" to reuniting with former boss Antonio Conte at Inter Milan this summer, says Gazzetta dello Sport.

But the Italian giants must first raise money through player sales to afford the Blues' £46million asking price.

Kante and Conte worked together at Stamford Bridge during the latter's two-year reign in West London – winning the Premier League and FA Cup along the way.

And Conte believes that bringing the Frenchman to Italy could be the final piece in the jigsaw when it comes to ending Juventus' dominance and winning the Serie A title this season.

Kante, 29, has started both of Chelsea's opening two Premier League matches this term.

But Inter are confident that the Blues will sell if offered £46m.
