Barcelona are in the hunt for a defensive midfielder and N’Golo Kanté is one of the few names being linked with a possible move to Spotify Camp Nou to replace Sergio Busquets.

Reports from SPORT claim that Barcelona are keeping tabs on acquiring the services of French midfielder Ngolo Kante and sources close to the player claim that he isn’t ready to renew his contract with Chelsea and thus he can leave for free in June. Barcelona, however, are willing to sign him in January.

It is said that Xavi and his coaching staff like the diminutive Frenchman for his work rate and consider him suitable for this project.

Sergio Busquets’s contract is set to expire at the end of this season and FC Barcelona are vigorously pursuing several options to replace their current captain. Sergio Busquets’s form has dipped with the passing years and Barcelona have had it hard trying to find a like-to-like heir for their Spanish veteran with the growing impatience from the Spotify Camp Nou faithful.

N’Golo Kanté, who was ruled out of the World Cup after suffering an injury, seems to be among the defensive midfielders Barcelona are eyeing to replace Busquets alongside Ruben Neves, Gundogan, and Martin Zubimendi as other alternatives for the given role.
