A report claims that Juventus have been put off making a move for Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante due to his £80m valuation.

Juventus have reportedly pulled out of the race to sign N'Golo Kante as they are not willing to meet Chelsea's asking price for the defensive midfielder.

The Blues are said to be prepared to cash in on the France international in the next transfer window due to concerns over his injury record.

Kante has made 164 appearances for the West London outfit in four years with the club, winning three major honours in that time, but he has been sidelined numerous times this term.

A bid of £80m is expected to be enough to prise the 29-year-old away from Stamford Bridge - a fee that Calciomercato claims is out of Juve's reach.

Chelsea are said to be unwilling to reduce their valuation given that Kante still has three years to run on his contract, but Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain may still be tempted to make an offer.
