Chelsea star N’Golo Kante is wanted by Al Nassr in an ambitious free transfer as the Saudi side also set their sights on Cristiano Ronaldo
CHELSEA star N’Golo Kante is reportedly being targeted by Al-Nassr.
According to Get French Football News, the Saudi Arabian giants are looking to sign Kante on a free transfer in the summer once his contract expires in June.
The midfielder has been plagued by injuries all season and was left out of France’s squad for the 2022 World Cup after managing just three appearances in total.
Al-Nassr is determined to sign some top stars in the summer, with Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly a priority following his dramatic departure from Manchester United.
The club is backed by the Saudi regime to attract some of the world’s biggest names to the country.
That’s due to the nation’s attempts to win its bid to host the 2030 World Cup.
As Sun Sport previously revealed, Ronaldo has a £173million offer from Al-Nassr on the table.
It has also been claimed that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is ‘expected to join them’ – although SunSport understands he has yet to accept a contract from them.
Kante, on the other hand, appears to be enjoying life in London and would rather move to another club in the English capital if Chelsea don’t offer him a contract extension.
The France international isn’t against a possible move to Saudi Arabia either.
