Chelsea boss Lampard denies seeking buyer for Kante

Inter Pondering Move For Fulham’s Jean Michael Seri British Broadcaster Claims

Inter Pondering Move For Fulham’s Jean Michael Seri British Broadcaster Claims

Frank Lampard says N'Golo Kante is "fundamental" to Chelsea's plans going forward and he has no intention of selling him.

The 29-year-old was limited to just 28 appearances for the Blues last season, with minor injuries keeping him sidelined after featuring in 53 matches during the previous campaign.

According to the Telegraph, the Blues have rejected a bid from Inter Milan for Kante, which was a player-plus cash deal involving Marcelo Brozovic.

He has been linked with a number of other clubs, including Real Madrid and Paris St-Germain.

Liverpool legend and pundit Mark Lawrenson has backed Chelsea in their bid to sign England worldwide Declan Rice before the end of this summer's transfer window next month.

Verizon to buy Tracfone for $6.25B
Almost two-thirds of Tracfone's 21 million USA customers get their service from Verizon via Tracfone renting Verizon's network. Credit Suisse is acting as financial adviser to Verizon on the deal, which is expected to close in the second half of 2021.

Blues boss Frank Lampard told BBC Radio 5 Live earlier this week Kante was fundamental to his plans despite reports Chelsea could consider cash bids for the World Cup victor.

But Lampard told BBC's Friday Football Social: "I see those reports as well".

"He's fundamental to what I'm trying to do".

Antonio Conte has made no secret of his desire to work with Kante again, having brought him to Stamford Bridge from Leicester City.

Conte's Inter side finished just one point behind Juventus last season and Conte is looking to improve his depth at wing-back, a key position in his favoured 3-5-2 formation. "He is a big deal for me and so, course, I want to keep N'Golo".
