EPL: Chelsea identify N’Golo Kante’s replacement

Guido Rodriguez, a midfielder for Real Betis, has reportedly been identified as a possible replacement for N’Golo Kante by Chelsea, according to Express.

Kante is reportedly a target for Arsenal, and Mikel Arteta’s team is reportedly planning a surprise move for the World Cup champion from France.

Rodriguez appears to be a potential signing for Chelsea as they look to replace Kante, who is 31.

Rodriguez had a successful season for Real Betis last year and has been linked with a transfer to Arsenal in the past, though a deal last summer fell through.

The Argentine star played 47 times for Manuel Pellegrini’s team last season, contributing three assists and two goals.

Rodriguez is attracting interest from a number of clubs, so Chelsea can anticipate competition in the race for his services.

The 28-year-old Rodriquez’s Real Betis contract will expire in 2024, and Transfermarkt values him at £22.5 million.

Kante must be replaced by Chelsea as soon as possible.
