Following the departures of Andres Iniesta and Paulinho, Barcelona are desperate to snatch N’Golo Kante from Chelsea.
Kante has been France’s stand-out player alongside Kylian Mbappe at the World Cup in Russia.
Marzio.com reports that Barcelona are also prepared to offer Andre Gomes in part exchange for Kante.
Gomes is surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou after an underwhelming two-year spell at Barcelona.
The Catalans are on the hunt for a new midfield presence after losing Iniesta to Japan and sending Paulinho back to China.
Chelsea will not want to lose Kante, who is seen as the single most importance figure in their midfield.
