Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante insists that he is fully focused on his current club amid speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has moved to distance himself from speculation linking him with a switch to Real Madrid this summer.

Kante is one of a host of high-profile players to have been mentioned as part of Madrid's expected summer overhaul, with returning manager Zinedine Zidane eager to make sweeping changes to his squad.

The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Sadio Mane and Kante's Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard are all understood to be on Madrid's radar, while Zidane is also thought to have earmarked compatriot Kante as an ideal candidate to bolster his midfield options.

However, Kante has insisted that he is fully focused on Chelsea, who face the prospect of having their two-window transfer ban upheld next month.

"I am at Chelsea and I still have aims here, what is said elsewhere is not important. That is not important. I am at Chelsea and I am focused on that," Kante is quoted as saying by RTL.

Juventus have also been linked with a move for the France international, who has made 132 appearances for Chelsea since joining from Leicester City in 2016.
