Chelsea are still considered the favourites for the signature of EURO 2016 star N’Golo Kante, despite serious interest from other parties.
According to The Daily Mail:
Juventus are continuing to press for Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante despite Chelsea being considered favourites for the France international.
Kante may have to wait until after EURO 2016 to seal his fate – he’s currently playing a crucial part in France’s title challenge – the the indicators in the press do seem to point towards a move for the 25-year-old midfielder.
In an ever more physical game Kante has the perfect skill set. He never seems to tire and provides a magnificent shield for his defence.
But his more creative talents shouldn’t be completely overlooked as Kante is a good passer of the ball who rarely wastes possession.
He seem to have the pick of many of Europe’s elite clubs this summer and it’s difficult to imagine the English champions holding on to him beyond this transfer window.
Chelsea could use his energy in the midfield with John Obi Mikel tiring, Ramires having left the club and Nemanja Matic a pale imitation of the player who bossed the midfield on his debut season.
Let’s see some of his best moments of late. Chelsea supporters: would N’Golo Kante get straight into the first team?
