PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN would like a summer transfer for N’Golo Kante.
The Chelsea man has been in stunning form for the Blues again this season after helping them win the Champions League last summer.
Kante’s contract expires at the end of next season, with PSG ‘removing the years’ from his deal, according to The Telegraph.
And if Kante does not sign an extension at Stamford Bridge, the club could be forced into a sale this summer to receive maximum profit.
There are just two transfer windows left to play before the Frenchman can leave for free.
Kante turns 31 next month, with Chelsea generally operating a policy of not offering players over the age of 30 more than a one-year contract.
The midfielder is reportedly earning around £300,000 a week and it remains to be seen whether the Blues offer the over-30s a big, long-term contract.
The Telegraph go on to suggest it’s entirely possible Kante will see out his year-and-a-half remaining before assessing his options at the end of next season.

Although Chelsea may prefer to cash in as soon as possible, which would mean listening to any potential offers at the end of the season.
And PSG could be ready to finally take a step towards their long-term goal.
Kante will get the chance to add the final piece of the puzzle to his trophy cabinet in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Liverpool.
He has already won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, Europa League, UEFA Super Cup AND Club World Cup with the Blues.
International glory also came in 2018 when Kante won the World Cup with France.
Kante has racked up 243 appearances for Chelsea since joining Leicester in a £30m deal in 2016.
