Kante open to exit

N’Golo Kante is reportedly considering an exit from Chelsea, with Inter Milan looking the potential suitors. Inter manager Antonio Conte is a big fan of the French midfielder, who he thinks could be vital in winning the Serie A title. Conte had worked with Kante during his time at Stamford Bridge. Inter have already signed Arturo Vidal from Barcelona.

Kepa to be sold on loan

Kepa Arrizabalaga is likely to leave on loan after the arrival of Edouard Mendy. The Senegalese goalkeeper, who arrives at a fee of £22m, has been tipped to take over the position of Kepa in the first-team. Meanwhile, the Spanish goalkeeper, who has become error-prone of late, would be sent on loan to La Liga.

Rudiger wanted by PSG

Antonio Rudiger has been approached by PSG over a loan move after reportedly being deemed out-of-favour by Frank Lampard. However, Chelsea are considering flogging out the German defender permanently. Rudiger has been dropped out of the squad for the last two games.

The Blues’ final attempt for Declan Rice.

Chelsea are set to make one last effort for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, who Frank Lampard admires the most. The Blues could sell Jorginho, who is the latest target of Arsenal, to favour the transfer of Dice. The Hammers are holding out on their skipper. Chelsea have spent bucks on a handful of players in the transfer window thus far but still want to sign the English midfielder.
