PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are ready to take advantage of N’Golo Kante’s situation at Chelsea by opening the cheque book this summer, according to reports.
Blues boss Maurizio Sarri continues to play the Frenchman outside of his favoured defensive midfield role.
Kante lifted the World Cup and won back-to-back Premier League titles by sitting in front of the defence.
But Sarri is struggling to get the same impact from the 27-year-old in his current midfield set-up.
Kante penned a new five-year contract worth a whopping £290,000-a-week in November.
However it won’t deter the Ligue 1 champions from attempting to lure him back to Paris according to Le10 Sport.

The report claims that the relationship between player and Sarri is fragile with PSG growing increasingly hopeful that a deal can be struck.
They are in the market for a new central midfielder to replace Adrien Rabiot.
Rabiot is being frozen out at the club after letting his contract run down and last featured on December 11.
Arsenal are just one of the clubs queuing for his signature.
