France midfielder N'Golo Kante has dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Paris Saint-Germain by insisting he feels at "home" at Chelsea.

Kante, 26, joined Chelsea in 2016 after playing a key role in Leicester City's remarkable Premier League title triumph. He again proved instrumental in his debut season for Chelsea as the London club reclaimed the league title.

Despite Chelsea's struggles this season, in which Antonio Conte's side are fighting to finish in the top four and whose only trophy hopes lie in the FA Cup, Kante has maintained his impressive form.

As a result, it has led to media speculation linking French giants PSG with a move for Kante, but the midfielder has made clear his desire to remain at Chelsea.

"I am at home. It is my club, I am a Chelsea player," said Kante, who is currently on international duty with France.

"This is my second year at Chelsea. After what happened last season, it was a very good one for us because we got to celebrate winning the title.

"In the second season, I have got to play in the Champions League and we are going again to finish in the top four. We will fight until the end to finish in the top four and to get in a Champions League position.

"We also have the FA Cup to play for - it is a good competition. Last season we failed in the final. It is the only trophy we can win this season, so we have to give everything to get to the final and win it."
