Inter Milan need to find £60m for Chelsea's Kante

Calciomercato is reporting that Inter Milan are willing to go to great lengths in order to sign Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante this summer.

Current Inter boss and former manager for the Blues, Antonio Conte, is apparently desperate to sign a player who was an integral part of Chelsea's Premier League triumph in the 2016-17 season.

However, Chelsea will only accept a bid of at least £60 million, says the report, with Inter open to offloading Joao Mario, Ivan Perisic and Dalbert Henrique to fund the move.
- Luis Suarez's representatives contacted Atletico Madrid last week to find out if they'd be interested in signing the Barcelona forward, according to Cadena COPE. Suarez was close to joining Juventus, after new Barca coach Ronald Koeman told him he was no longer needed at Camp Nou. COPE claims Atletico coach Diego Simeone spoke to the Uruguayan personally -- but the La Liga club couldn't take on his financial demands.

Suarez is in the process of acquiring Italian nationality, according to reports. The forward, who is tied to Barca until June 2021, still has to terminate his contract with Barca. Sky Italia claims the 33-year-old will undergo in the next few days an exam to tests his level of Italian as part of the requirements to get nationality, a move that is possible thanks to Suarez's wife, Sofia Balbi, who is of Italian descent.

-Coutinho set to stay at Barcelona
Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has told the club he wants to keep hold of Philippe Coutinho, Marca reports.

While the Brazil international has enjoyed flashes of brilliance during his loan spell with Bayern Munich, the same can't really be said for his tenure at the Camp Nou. Koeman is ready to give the player another chance to prove himself, and the possibility of another loan move for the ex-Liverpool sensation has now been ruled out.

The only way that he would be leaving this summer is if a club came in with a huge permanent offer, but that isn't expected to happen due to the financial restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

-AC Milan close in on Bakayoko?
Serie A side AC Milan are edging closer to completing the signing of Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, Corriere dello Sport reports.

After a great deal of back and forth between the two clubs over the specifics of the deal, here is now said to be a "general agreement" that should facilitate this transfer getting done.

While he is clearly surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have spent plenty of time dragging their feet over this move, but Bakayoko is said to be working closely with them to try and speed up the process.
