N’Golo Kante was back in training on Monday 20th May as he recovers from a hamstring strain.

Chelsea are just a week out from the Europa League final against Arsenal.

Kante missed the Blues’ last two games of the season with his injury issue.

However, one player who was in action on Monday was N’Golo Kante, who is on his way back from a hamstring injury.

This is a major boost ahead of the final in Baku on May 29 as the Blues midfielder is now likely to be fit for the match.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have stepped up their preparations for their Europa League final clash with Arsenal as clouds hang over the futures of talisman Eden Hazard and manager Maurizio Sarri.

Hazard, who was seen showing off his tremendous dribbling skills on Monday, will be allowed to leave this summer.

Sportsmail understands the Blues are concerned that if they let him leave Stamford Bridge for free next summer – when his contract expires – there would be repercussions for their Financial Fair play figures.

Sarri, who was not photographed at Cobham training ground, is also being lined up by Juventus to replace outgoing coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Kepa Arrizabalaga was also in action showing off his reflexes as he bids to win his first club competition.

Hazard and left-back Marcos Alonso were seen squatting as they fight for a starting spot in Baku.

Olivier Giroud, who will be hoping to start the match, was spotted working on his strength.

The player who might stop Giroud starting is Gonzalo Higuain who was working out with Mateo Kovacic.
