Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has said he is not thinking about speculation linking him with French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Reports have suggested that Kante, 27, is a PSG target, with RMC claiming earlier this month that Chelsea — where he is under contract until 2021 — would demand at least €100 million for him.

The France international is with the national squad as they prepare for the World Cup in Russia and said that was his focus.

“I haven’t been particularly approached by clubs,” he said at a news conference. “It’s my agent who looks after that kind of thing.

“At the moment, I’m a Chelsea player and I don’t worry about what’s going on around me. I’m preparing for the World Cup — that’s all I have on my mind.”

Kante’s France teammate Kylian Mbappe, who plays for PSG, said last month he would sign the former Leicester player if he could and believed he would be a perfect fit.
