Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad keen to sign Kante

Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad are keen to sign N’Golo Kante.

The French midfielder’s Chelsea contract expires this summer and he has been in talks about a new deal.

Several clubs have expressed an interest in Kante, 32, and Al Ittihad have indicated that they are ready to offer him lucrative terms.

A move there could see Kante link up with his France team-mate Karim Benzema, who is expected to sign following his departure from Real Madrid.

Kante has been at Chelsea for seven years and been a key player for the Blues.

However, he has been plagued by injuries in recent years and managed just six Premier League appearances last season, having been sidelined from August to April.
