Chelsea are making the contract renewals of N’Golo Kante and Jorginho a priority this summer, according to reports.
Both players have been highly successful at the Blues since they made their respective moves, with both establishing themselves as some of the best midfielders in world football in recent seasons.
Both players will see their deals expire next summer, so the club may look to resolve their futures amid interest from other sides.
It is thought that they want to avoid the prospect of both players leaving the club on free transfer next summer, something that has already happened in the current window.
Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen will both leave ahead of next season upon the expiration of their contracts, with the players moving to Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
Kante has featured 260 times for the club in all competitions since his move six years ago, and the Frenchman’s performances in their Champions League run in the 2020/21 campaign were crucial to them lifting the trophy for the second time in their history.
Italian international Jorginho has just completed his fourth season at the club, with the 30-year-old finishing third in the Ballon d’Or rankings and being named as the UEFA Mens’ Player of the Year last year.
While their extensions may be a priority, they may not be the only players that Chelsea will look to keep on longer deals in the coming months.
Mason Mount and Reece James are also expected to be offered new deals, with the new ownership of Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital also prioritising their futures.
With the club looking to keep some of their current options on the books for the foreseeable future, they are also looking to sign new additions in the summer transfer window.
Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has emerged as a potential target for the Blues, with the 27-year-old heading into the summer off the back of his fourth Premier League title.
City will be looking for a fee of around £60 million to let him leave the club, even though the forward has just one year left on his deal in Manchester.
