Barcelona allegedly eye Kante move
- The Blues' midfielder is reportedly the Blaugrana's top-priority choice to replace Paulinho
According to an extremely reliable source, Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Barcelona have targeted Chelsea's French midfielder N'Golo Kante.
The Spanish giants are supposedly looking for a proper replacement to Paulinho, who returned to China, and the 27-year-old half-back is their first choice at the moment.
The source hint at an upcoming offer from Barca which could involve their Portuguese midfielder Andrè Gomes.

According to Di Marzio:
Barcelona want N’Golo Kante and also want to use Andre Gomes as part of the deal.
First PSG and now Barcelona.
Chelsea really need to offer him that mega contract to keep him at the club, he’s vital. pic.twitter.com/UGvgse4RCr
Chelsea, however, would hardly be eager to part ways with one of the world's best midfielders and are likely to match any contract proposal Kante could get from any side interested.
