There have been talks about N’Golo Kante’s future at Chelsea, but Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has no intention of losing N’Golo Kante this summer.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with a move for Kante, with Real Madrid strongly interested in the Chelsea midfielder, having snapped up Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard.

According to Goal’s Nizaar Kinsella, Lampard is counting on the midfielder for next season – and beyond.

Former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch has urged Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to sign Kante.

When asked who he would sign if he was Liverpool boss, Crouch told Daily Mail: “The thing with Liverpool is that they really don’t need much. Michael Edwards, their sporting director who I knew from my time at Portsmouth, has overseen an incredible recruitment drive.

“Liverpool don’t just have good players – they have good characters too and the training ground is harmonious.

“They won’t stand still this summer and they will keep evolving. The front three is good enough to be left alone but maybe they need something in midfield.

“If it was me, maybe N’Golo Kante would fit right in. I’d even bring Philippe Coutinho back, so long as he knew he would be a squad player.”
