Chelsea 'rejected 2 offers' for unsettled Kante last year

Chelsea resisted two major offers for N'Golo Kante last summer, it has been revealed.

The France midfielder, 29, enjoyed a superb season under Frank Lampard and Thomas Tuchel as he helped Chelsea win a second Champions League trophy.

Kante is now looking to add the Euros to his vast collection of silverware.

And Chelsea are eager to keep him at Stamford Bridge for many more years on a lucrative new deal.

It's believed talks will take place over the coming months, with Kante and Chelsea's hierarchy enjoying a 'great' relationship, says The Sun.

And Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports the Blues are eager to secure Kante's future after rejecting two offers last year.

"He wanted to stay last summer after some 'complicated' weeks and two bids received, Chelsea want to reward Kanté," revealed Romano.
