The Blues seem prepared to do business for the France midfielder. 

But only if someone coughs up £45m.

Yet boss Antonio Conte believes the capture of Kante, 29, is so vital to his plans to overhaul Juventus he believes a sacrifice can be made in the Skriniar deal.

He wants the Inter board to lower the asking price to ensure the transfer is done.

Inter will then turn their attention to signing Kante.

He could be sold to finance a Blues bid for West Ham’s Declan Rice.
