Leicester City have offered midfielder N'Golo Kante an improved four-year contract, according to Sky sources.
The Premier League champions are hoping the offer of improved terms will persuade the France international to remain at the club.
Reports in France have stated that Chelsea have already agreed a fee of £29m with Leicester for Kante but we understand that is not the case.
Sky sources report that Kante was offered a new deal by Leicester before Euro 2016 got underway and negotiations are continuing, as the player mulls over his future.
The 25-year-old Kante only joined Leicester from Caen last summer but quickly emerged as one of their key performers as the Foxes launched a successful title bid.

His energetic performances earned him a place in the PFA Premier League team of the year and he also forced his way into the France squad.
Several clubs have been linked with moves for Kante this summer but Leicester are clearly keen to keep hold of one of their prize assets.
