Chelsea's N'Golo Kante is wanted by Barcelona

Former Barcelona forward Gary Lineker has claimed that Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante "would be the ideal signing" for the Spanish champions.

Barcelona have reportedly made an approach for Kante over the last few days, and Lineker has urged the Catalan giants to complete a deal for the 27-year-old.

However, the Chelsea FC midfielder has been watching proceedings from afar and he has been delighted to see how the likes of Kante and Giroud have been performing in Russian Federation.

Busquets sees Kante's signing as a direct threat to his future at the club and he has sent an ultimatum to Barca chiefs.

He is now with the French national team in Russian Federation, preparing to play in the World Cup final on Sunday against Croatia.

"For me, until now, N'Golo has been the best player at the World Cup", he told L'Equipe.

'He is a player in the service of the players.

But Kante silently emerged as France's hero for the game and the entire tournament in Russian Federation. Kante is everywhere. The quality of his passing is excellent, he crosses the lines and looks forward.

N'Golo Kante - the most humble man in football. Honestly, it's a huge advantage to have Kante in the team.

They face Croatia in the final of this year's edition of the championship, and the former Leicester City midfielder is expected to play a key role in that game.

The player could have literally soiled himself during the world's most watched event, not to mention the pain he might have endured as he still ran tirelessly along the ground - albeit visibly bereft of that extra step. The way he takes the ball from the feet of his opponents, without them appearing to notice, is incredible.
