Chelsea are willing to sell N’Golo Kante in this transfer window, with head coach Frank Lampard keen to trim his squad following a plethora of incomings this summer. That is according to transfer expert Ian McGarry, who claims Lampard is keen to adopt the approach of his former manager Jose Mourinho by having a smaller core of first-team players to call upon this season.
Chelsea have signed six players so far in this window and remain keen on bringing in a goalkeeper.
The arrivals of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell and Kai Havertz have taken their transfer outlay to over £200million.
Defenders Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr have also joined on free transfers, so Lampard is eager to reduce his playing staff.
And France star Kante is a player who the club are allowing to leave, though the 29-year-old is not keen on doing so.
