N’Golo Kante looks set to follow Jamie Vardy out of Leicester with PSG reportedly happy to meet the French midfielder’s £20m release clause.
Le Parisien is one of several French outlets reporting that Kante is very interested in joining the French champions and will sign a five-year deal.
Kante has played himself into Didier Deschamps’ Euro 2016 side despite being uncapped in March.

Kante himself has said: “For now, I have not taken a decision even if I have been made offers. It will be great to play in the Champions League. I will decide my future after the Euros.”
The Premier League title winner started a 3-0 win over Scotland on Saturday night and Deschamps said: “Everything looks simple and easy with [Kante]. And I know that it is not always easy, I have played sometimes at the same position.
“Sometimes, it is difficult. But N’Golo Kante knows what he has to do and he does it well, very well, for the team.
“He can relaunch the game. I am happy for him. He is a discreet man, he is quiet but he is here. And he always smiles. He has arrived [in the squad] not long ago.
“In March, he showed already many qualities. I am not anxious. He has a fluent game. Everything he does is fluent.”
