Chelsea set to make N’Golo Kante transfer decision as Thomas Tuchel suffers injury setback



Here is your Chelsea morning digest on Sunday, September 26.

Potential Kante departure

He was an integral part of the side that won the Champions League last season, but Chelsea are now reportedly open to selling N’Golo Kante next summer.

The Frenchman was excellent in clashes with Real Madrid as well as in the final against Manchester City, and also changed the game with Tottenham from the bench last weekend.

Fichajes have reported this latest update and reference the excitement around Billy Gilmour and Conor Gallagher as a reason for considering a sale. Kante’s current deal will expire in 2023 so cashing in next summer could be the best option.

Both Gallagher and Gilmour have impressed during their respective loan spells and both Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are thought to be interested in Kante.

Reece James injury blow

Saturday was really a day to forget for Chelsea.

Not only were the Blues beaten for the first time this season but right-back Reece James was forced off after less than 30 minutes with an ankle injury following a collision with Jack Grealish.

While there has been little by the way of updates on his fitness, there are reports that the type of injury suffered can rule players out for up to six weeks, something that would be a real blow to Thomas Tuchel and his side.

Azpilicueta’s message

Chelsea may have lost their first match of the season in a disappointing manner on Saturday but club captain Cesar Azpilicueta kept a level head after the final whistle.

“Not our best game today with a defeat that hurts but we win and we lose together!” the defender wrote on Twitter.

“Thank you for your support, we go again on Wednesday!”

Juventus will be the Blues’ next opponents when they clash in Turin in matchday two of the Champions League, with Tuchel’s side looking to retain Europe’s biggest prize.
