Transfer: N’Golo Kante to join Cristiano Ronaldo at new club

N'Golo Kante injury update

Chelsea midfielder, N’Golo Kante, is being linked with a move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.

Kante has struggled this year with injuries and looks likely to leave Stamford Bridge when his contract ends next summer.

A number of teams have already made their interest in Kante known and it appears that the Saudi high-flyers have emerged as the frontrunners to sign him.

According to Foot Mercato, Al-Nassr are keen on adding Kante to their squad when his deal expires at the end of the season.

The former Leicester City man has not played since mid-August and is yet to feature under Graham Potter since his appointment as manager.

However, that is not enough to deter the Saudi Arabian side from pursuing the World Cup and Premier League winner.

They are looking to add both Kante and former Man United star Cristiano Ronaldo to their squad in the coming months.

It was only this week that Potter confirmed Kante will not be available for selection until the end of February or start of March as the midfielder recovers from hamstring surgery.

The midfielder went under the knife in October, ruling him out of action for four months.

‘He will be a while, end of Feb, start of March,’ Potter said. ‘It was a surgery, so it is a minimum period of four months pretty much.

‘I think my focus is to help him get back fit as soon as possible, everyone knows the quality he has.’
