Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri urges his club to move for Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante, according to a report.

Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has reportedly urged his club to move for Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante.

Sarri worked with the Frenchman during the 2019-20 campaign, with the former Leicester City midfielder handed a more attacking role under the Italian manager at Stamford Bridge.

Juve improved their midfield for the upcoming season by signing the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot over the summer - both arriving at the Italian champions on free transfers.

However, according to the Daily Mail, Sarri is determined to bring Kante to Turin in next summer's transfer window and has already approached vice-chairman Pavel Nedved over a potential swoop.

The report adds that Juve believe that £70m would be enough to convince Chelsea to sell, and the Serie A outfit are prepared to spend that amount on the 2018 World Cup winner.

Kante helped Leicester win the 2015-16 Premier League title before joining the Blues, whom he has represented on 146 occasions over the last four seasons.
