It was a bit of an odd season for Chelsea.
The Stamford Bridge side ultimately finished in third in the Premier League, but many fans would be quick to say it wasn’t a terribly satisfying season.
However, booking their place in the Champions League will come as a massive positive and they will be looking forward to taking on Europe’s elite again.
Sadly, for Chelsea, they may have to do it without midfield engine N’Golo Kante.
News has emerged in the Mirror that French giants Paris Saint-Germain have made Kante a priority as they desperately seek an answer to their European woes.

The big-spending Parisians were knocked out of the Champions League by Manchester United this season and are now seeking new ways to make the leap from domestic domination to continental.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri played Kante out of position for most of the season and the French world cup winner could be attracted to the prospect of being able to play in his favoured position once again.
Plus, he would be returning to his homeland, making the move an even more attractive prospect.
Chelsea will be loathed to lose their midfield dynamo though, with Eden Hazard also on the brink of leaving the club.
If they are unable to replace the two, then their return to the Champions League could well be short-lived.
Unfortunately, when a club with the infinite resources that PSG has at their disposal sets their heart on something, they tend to get what they want.
It would not come as a massive surprise if Kante were to be lining up in a PSG shirt come the start of the new season.
It would be a massive blow for Chelsea though, who can ill-afford to lose another crucial member of their squad.News Now - Sport News
