The France international has passed a medical and put pen to paper on a five-year-contract, the Stamford Bridge club have confirmed.

The fee is reported to be around £32million for the 25-year-old.

Kante, signed for Leicester last summer from Caen for £5.6million, was a revelation during his maiden season in England, as Claudio Ranieri’s side became shock Premier League champions.

He was named on the six-man shortlist for the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award – won by Foxes team-mate Riyad Mahrez – but his displays also brought him to the attention of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Kante told the club’s website: “I am so happy to have signed for one of the biggest clubs in Europe. It’s a dream come true for me.

“The opportunity to work with Antonio Conte, a brilliant coach, and some of the best players in the world was simply too good to turn down.”
