Chelsea offer French midfielder N'Golo Kante a new five-year contract worth close to £290,000 a week, according to a report.

Chelsea have reportedly offered N'Golo Kante a new five-year contract worth close to £290,000 a week.

Kante's existing deal with Chelsea will run until the summer of 2021, but the defensive midfielder has been strongly linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge ahead of the new season.

Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have all been credited with an interest in a player who helped France win the 2018 World Cup with a string of impressive performances.

According to The Times, however, Chelsea have offered Kante the chance to become the club's best-paid player - moving ahead of Eden Hazard - with a five-year contract worth close to £290,000 a week.

The 27-year-old joined Chelsea from Leicester City in 2016 after helping the Foxes land the Premier League title, and has made 89 appearances for the Blues over the last two seasons.
