Antonio Conte's side are confident of securing deals for the Leicester City midfielder and the Senegal international, who is valued at £50m by Serie A outfit Napoli
Chelsea are closing in on an £80 million double swoop for N’Golo Kante and Kalidou Koulibaly, according to Sportmasta.
Kante, who was one of the standout midfielders in the Premier League last season as Leicester City won the title, is nearing a switch to Stamford Bridge as a £30m deal has reportedly been agreed between the two clubs.
Having missed out on Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci, Antonio Conte has now turned his attentions to Napoli’s Koulibaly as he looks to bolster his defensive options.
The Serie A club are demanding £50m for the 25-year-old and despite Everton’s interest, Chelsea believe they are leading the race for the defender.
