Chelsea have slapped a massive £80m price tag on N’Golo Kante, the UK Mirror reports.
Kante has emerged as a target for Inter Milan, Antonio Conte, who is targeting at least three players from the Premier League team.
Conte is preparing to raid his former club, to improve his squad ahead of the 2020/2021 campaign.
The Italian manager wants to be reunited with midfielder Kante, as well as left-back Emerson Palmieri and striker Olivier Giroud.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard does not want to sell Kante, but the club must raise funds after bringing in Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr this summer.
Bayer Leverkusen midfielder, Kai Havertz, is set to arrive at Stamford Bridge in a £90m deal.
Although there have been initial talks between Chelsea and Inter over Kante, the Blues will not sell the 29-year-old Frenchman for anything less than £80m.
