France global N'Golo Kante has been linked with a surprise exit from Chelsea with Barcelona keen on acquiring his services.

According to Sky Sports' Kaveh Solhelkol, the Blaugrana are preparing a player-plus-cash deal for the former Caen man which would include Andre Gomes as a makeweight.

Gomes, meanwhile, has been a peripheral figure in Catalonia since signing from Valencia in 2016.

It is understood that the Catalan powerhouse have already proposed an offer to Chelsea and are awaiting a response.

Chelsea are unlikely to want to lose one of their prized assets.

That being said, Barcelona are ready to go all out for another midfielder this summer following the retirement of Andres Iniesta. N'golo Kante is linked with a move away from Chelsea with plenty of suitors monitoring the Frenchman's situation, including La Liga champions Barcelona.

He is now with the French national team in Russian Federation, preparing to play in the World Cup final on Sunday against Croatia. But, of course, given his rise as the best defensive midfielder in Europe, Chelsea are sure to have a few offers for his services before the transfer window shuts this summer. And the former Napoli coach will undoubtedly be delighted to have someone like Kante at his disposal.
