Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Giroud agrees to Juventus deal
However, the goalkeeper remains hopeful of a Premier League move, with the Gunners a likely destination.
Brentford reached the play-off final last season and their failure to earn promotion from the Championship has seen several key faces linked with the door.
Chelsea man to end Premier League stay
The France international and World Cup winner has spent the last two-and-a-half seasons at Stamford Bridge, having arrived from rivals Arsenal in January 2018.
The Premier League outfit have a keen interest in the centre-back and wish to bring him to the King Power Stadium.
But Puel does not wish to let his young talent go to his old club as he prepares for a Ligue 1 campaign where they will look to push on from last season's cup final appearance.
In addition, the Blues have also informed the Serie A club that they will not accept Christian Eriksen in part-exchange either.
Kante has caught the eye of several clubs across Europe, including Manchester United, while former Tottenham man Eriksen looks to possibly be on the way out of San Siro less than a year after his arrival.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles will prioritise first team football as he looks to clarify his future at Arsenal, claims the Mail.
The newly-minted England international is not guarenteed starting minutes under Mikel Arteta this season.
As such, he could leave his boyhood club in search of the game time he desires elsewhere, with Wolves thought to be weighing an improved offer for him.
