According to our colleagues at L’Équipe, Premier League side West Ham United are preparing a bid for SM Caen defensive midfielder N’Golo Kanté.
The player has been the subject of formal offers from Leicester and Marseille, but these have yet to lead anywhere at the time of writing.
The player was pictured mysteriously leaving training before everyone else this morning, with SM Caen manager Patrice Garande recently confirming that the club was in contact with one English club about the player. Garande has been speaking in press conferences as if he will only have the player for a very short amount of time into the future. More to follow in the coming days.
