Sporting director Piero Ausilio has dismissed suggestions that Inter Milan are looking to sign Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante.
Numerous reports have claimed that head coach Antonio Conte is bidding to secure a reunion with a player whom he worked with at Stamford Bridge.
After a four-year spell in West London, Kante is said to be open to making the switch to San Siro before the end of the summer transfer window.
However, Ausillo has claimed that the France international has not been made available for transfer by the Blues, who need to reduce their squad numbers.
On Saturday night, Ausillo told reporters: "Kante is not on the market, he's a starter at Chelsea. We're not in talks for him also because we've already eight midfielders in our team."
Chelsea allegedly value 29-year-old Kante in the region of £46m.
