According to Goal, Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante isn’t pressing for a move away from the club, despite interest from Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte to reunite with the midfielder.

Conte managed the 29-year-old for two seasons at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League and FA Cup together.

Kante is reportedly settled at Chelsea and is ready to turn down any offer from Inter Milan unless Chelsea boss Frank Lampard doesn’t want him at the club.

Goal also claim Chelsea could be tempted to sell Kante this summer if a large offer is received from Inter Milan. However, the Serie A side aren’t in the financial position to pay any mega-money fees for players this summer.

Kante missed almost 50 per cent of his side’s matches last term, which became a cause for concern for Lampard, but he kept reiterating his desire to keep the midfielder throughout the season.

“He is an incredible player, I keep saying it and I mean it, he is huge for this club,” Lampard said at the end of June. “He has been huge and he will be for a long time and I am happy with him.

“It is not just about N’Golo. I have got other midfield players and a lot of competition in midfield but at the moment, N’Golo is doing a really good job there.”
