Inter's transfer 'assault' for Chelsea star Kante can only begin after offloading flops with Eriksen's future in doubt

INTER MILAN are reportedly planning a transfer 'assault' on Chelsea for star midfielder N'Golo Kante.

But Antonio Conte will have to flog some of his squad first if he is to be reunited with the French midfielder.

CalcioMercato reports that Joao Mario, Dalbert Henrique and Ivan Perisic are the three most at risk of being shown the exit.

But former Tottenham ace Christian Eriksen, Milan Skriniar and Marcelo Brozovic are all fighting for their Inter futures.

Kante reportedly wants to fight for his spot at Chelsea despite interest elsewhere.

Frank Lampard's side are reportedly prepared to sell the midfielder for £80million this summer.

But Kante has no intention to leave Chelsea as he is settled at the club, according to Goal.

The 29-year-old wants to cement his spot in the squad after an injury-hit 2019/20 campaign.

He scored three goals in 22 league appearances last term, but failed to make a single assist.

Lampard has not instructed the club to sell Kante despite his huge summer spending spree.

And he showed faith in the Frenchman as he handed him the captain's armband for the game against Brighton.

Conte signed Kante from Leicester in 2016 while he was in charge at Stamford Bridge.

The Serie A boss has already snapped up Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Eriksen, Ashley Young and Victor Moses from the Premier League.

And another former Prem player in the form of ex-Manchester City ace Aleksandr Kolarov is close to joining the club from Serie A rivals Roma.
