N’Golo Kante is expected to depart Chelsea as a free agent and sign for Al-Ittihad.
The Saudi Arabian champions have despatched a team to the UK to tie up a deal for the France midfielder.
This was disclosed by football transfer specialist, Fabrizio Romano.
“N’Golo Kanté is on the verge of joining Al Ittihad on free transfer! Final elements are being addressed, then proposal will be accepted.
“Al Ittihad directors just arrived in London to link up with the PIF Saudi delegation to prepare documents. €100m per year until 2025.”
Kante will be the next elite player to join Al-Ittihad after Karim Benzema was officially presented on Tuesday.
