PSG readying pre-contract for Chelsea midfielder Kante

PSG chief Luis Campos has been encouraged in his interest for Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.

The France midfielder is a target for Campos, who knows he has just rejected a new contract offer from Chelsea.

Kante has left the door open to more negotiations, but The Times says PSG and Campos remain keen.

The 31 year-old is inside the final 12 months of his existing deal – which leaves PSG open to securing him to a pre-contract from January 1.

Kante has been battling with nagging injuries so far this year.
