Barcelona are interested in the signature of Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante as Andres Iniesta's replacement, according to reports.

Kante has been France's stand-out player alongside Kylian Mbappe in Russian Federation and will bid to lead Les Blues to World Cup glory on Sunday against Croatia.

Italian outlet Gianluca Di Marzio, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that the Spanish giants are targeting a big-money move to bring the 27-year-old midfielder to Camp Nou this summer. But, of course, given his rise as the best defensive midfielder in Europe, Chelsea are sure to have a few offers for his services before the transfer window shuts this summer.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Spanish champions Barcelona have made a second bid for Chelsea's Brazil worldwide Willian worth £60m.

Their departures, followed by a clutch of junior aides, destabilised May's government and revived talk of a leadership challenge. Services more generally "will not have current levels of access to each other's markets".

The former Leicester City man, who won the PFA player of the season award in 2016-17 after he won his second consecutive Premier League title for the "Blues", has been a consistent performer for club and country for the last couple of years.

Chelsea, who are unwilling to lose Kante at any cost, are unlikely to entertain such an offer, especially given that Gomes is involved.

The same report says that Barca are willing to include Andre Gomes as part of the deal to make it more appealing for the west London club.
