Barcelona have set their sights on Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante this summer and are looking to include Philippe Coutinho as part of a deal.

The Spanish club are looking to offload the Brazilian and Chelsea are thought to be interested in the 27-year-old.

Kante has caught the eye of Barcelona hierarchy, and they believe he is the ball-winning midfielder to add to their squad.

Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal are set to leave the club in the summer, and the Frenchman has been earmarked as their replacement.

Arsenal and Manchester City are also thought to be interested in bringing Phillipe Coutinho back to the Premier League.

The Brazilian left for Spain in 2018 from Liverpool, but his time in the Spanish capital has not worked out.

Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian has previously admitted that his client would be open to a move back to England.

“The Premier League is something that he has always enjoyed playing in, and loved playing in, and would probably love to come back and play in.”
