Everton are reportedly facing a battle with PSG for Marcos Rojo

N’Golo Kante

That being said, Everton boss Marco Silva is very keen on bringing Rojo in, especially after his recent World Cup performances, where the defender made some key contributions for his country. In the current Chelsea squad, Eden Hazard is the highest earner with a £220,000-a-week deal which expires in June 2020.

Leicester City are likely to be without Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy when they open the new Premier League season August 10 at Manchester United, manager Claude Puel said.

But the Blues have acted swiftly to offer Kante a deal that would see him leapfrog Hazard, who now makes £220,000 a week, as their top earner.

Hazard and fellow Belgian Thibaut Courtois, who is also believed to be subject of a £35.5-million bid from Real Madrid, are due back in training this weekend after their holidays following Belgium's run to the World Cup semi-finals. We're incredibly lucky to have him at the club.

But to secure his future, Sarri has reportedly advised the board to offer their star players an improved contract in an effort to dissuade them from moving, which the board is apparently working on.

Mourinho has admitted he'd ideally like to see two more players arrive before the transfer window closes and a central defender is on the agenda as doubts continue over the likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly while Victor Lindelof and Marcos Rojo are being linked with moves away. The Golden Glove victor of the World Cup has just a year to run on his contract but is eager to move to Spain possibly to Real Madrid.

The report comes hot off the heels that Paris St-Germain are not yet done with pursuing the 27-year old N'Golo Kante - but the hope that the most lucratives Blues contract in history will be more than enough to make the midfielder feel untouchable in west London. Now the FA Cup winners are apparently ready to let him join the Champions league victor however they are keen to buy a replacement first.

Chelsea have no intention of letting him go, though.
