The injury-plagued midfielder has played just twice for Chelsea this season.
Kante is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, and the Blues have “absolutely no intention” of handing him a new deal.
The 31-year-old’s injury record means Chelsea is reluctant to pin him down to an extension, with Kante earning a reported £170k-a-week on his current deal.
But the French World Cup winner is intent on staying in London.
As a result, his agents are claimed to have offered him to both Arsenal and Tottenham.
He is available for nothing at the end of the campaign and free to begin talks with overseas clubs from January regarding a pre-contract agreement.
However, reports have suggested that Arsenal isn’t interested in signing the Frenchman.
On the other hand, Tottenham is prepared to bring in established stars. Although several young stars signed in the summer, Antonio Conte also brought in the likes of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Clement Lenglet (loan).
With Arsenal uninterested, if Kante does want to stay in London, Tottenham seems like the obvious destination. It’s a move expected to have several twists and turns along the way, though, so only time will tell.
