And according to Gazzetta Italia, Inter are confident they can land the midfielder with Antonio Conte keen to reunite with Kante.

The Italian managed the energetic ace for two seasons, winning both the Premier League and FA Cup.

But his transfer fee and current £290,000-a-week wages are likely to prove a big stumbling block in negotiations.

Kante still has three years left on his current pay packet and Chelsea are expected to ask for huge money to let him leave.

His season has been hampered by injury limiting him to just 20 league starts.

Conte is ready to revamp his squad this summer and spend big despite the coronavirus pandemic.

The gaffer wants two new midfielders including Brescia wonderkid Sandro Tonali.

Inter are expected to beat the likes of Juventus for the signature of the 20-year-old dubbed the new Andrea Pirlo.

And if they fail to land Kante, he will turn his attentions to Tottenham flop Tanguy Ndombele.

Spurs’ club-record £65million signing has endured a miserable debut season in the Premier League having fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho.

Chris Smalling is also an option in defence after returning to Manchester United from his loan spell at Roma.

Jamie Carragher says Man Utd’s midfield of Pogba, Fernandes and Van de Beek could be a WEAKNESS

jamie carragher says man utds midfield of pogba fernandes and van de beek could be a weakness

Jamie Carragher believes Manchester United‘s new-look midfield trio may struggle to stop counter-attacks at the beginning of this new season. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were stunned on Saturday night in their Premier League opener, slumping to a 3-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace

The midfield pairing of Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes flourished at the back-end of last season but with the arrival of Donny van de Beek for £40m this summer, former Liverpool centre back Carragher has his doubts about the defensive capabilities of that particular trio.

‘Towards the end of last season United were playing really well and they’ll get back to that,’ Carragher told Sky Sports on Monday night. 

‘I’m not convinced this team, who have now become a more possession-based team since Fernandes has come in, Pogba is in centre of midfield, the more possession you have the more chance you can get counter attacked, that midfield for me is not right. 

‘You’ve got Van de Beek in the No 10 who came on, Fernandes went back. I think that team will be far too easy to counter attack against.’

Ex-Ajax midfielder Van de Beek was a second-half substitute at Old Trafford and scored on his debut to hand a lifeline to the hosts.

Van de Beek's late goal on debut was not enough to trigger a United comeback on Saturday

But Palace star Wilfried Zaha took advantage of space in front of the United back four to score his second of the game and put the match to bed. 

‘This is Crystal Palace – good as a counter attacking team but don’t have some of the quality that some of the top teams have at the top end of the pitch,’ Carragher added.

‘And if I’m proven wrong I’ll come on this show and say so but for me, with the pace at centre back and how open they are in the centre of midfield – Manchester United are going to have a real problem stopping teams counter-attacking.’

KAMEKO is to be sent into battle once more in Friday’s Group 2 Joel Stakes.

Andrew Balding’s Guineas winner will drop back to a mile at Newmarket after his Juddmonte International fourth at York.

And his trainer thinks it could bring out the best in him as he is set to clash with Saeed bin Suroor’s Benbatl.

Champion Jockey Oisin Murphy will have to hop off Benbatl to ride Qatar Racing’s Kameko and it means Frankie Dettori gets the call up on Suroor’s star.

Balding told Sun Racing: “The plan’s to go to Newmarket as we need to get a run in before Champions Day.

“He had a hard race at York, but he’s back to his best now at home.

“He’s back to a mile now and that’s a positive I think. His Guineas win was clearly his standout effort and his Sussex Stakes run was probably next best.

“We were running out of places to go but this race works well and while he has to carry a penalty against some smart horses, we’re hopeful.”

Coral make Benbatl the 3-1 favourite with Kameko a 7-2 chance and James Tate’s Top Rank 5-1.

Coral Bet:

Benbatl 3-1

Kameko 7-2

Top Rank 5-1

Tilsit 6-1

Regal Reality 8-1

Dark Vision 12-1

Global Giant 12-1

Sir Busker 12-1

Meanwhile stablemate Tactical will take his chance in Saturday’s Group 1 Middle Park Stakes.

Balding added: “He got stuck in the ground a bit in France.

“His previous form has worked out well though and he should bounce back on a better surface.

“It’s another red-hot race but we’ve always liked this horse and he’s a Royal Ascot and a July Stakes winner.”
