Remember that famous saying last season that “75% of the world is covered by water, the rest by Kante?” – well that coverer is on his way to stamford bridge.
Chelsea have signed Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante on a five-year deal for a fee believed to be in the region of £30m.
The defensive midfielder joined from Caen last summer for £6m and went on to make 40 appearances in Leicester’s Premier League-winning campaign.
Kante, 25, was part of the France squad that reached the final of Euro 2016.
“I am so happy to have signed for one of the biggest clubs in Europe. It’s a dream come true for me,” he said.
Kante is Chelsea’s second signing of the summer after Belgian striker Batshuayi.
