N’Golo Kante has become a top target for Inter Milan in the last week. The rumors, which I thought to be simply filler, have turned out to be pretty on point. Italian reports in the last couple days have detailed the priority shift inside of Inter when it comes to the midfield.

Antonio Conte has made it clear that he prefers Kante to signing Sandro Tonali. The immediacy of Conte’s desire to win has put Kante at the top of the list for midfielders he wishes to sign.

Inter reportedly want to sign Kante on a loan deal with an option to buy. This has moved quickly from something simply floated out there, to a real chance it happens. Kante in the Inter midfield is an exciting thought. Hope this deal gets done.
