End all speculation as Lampard announces midfielder to be at Chelsea this summer!
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard insists he has no plans to sell N’Golo Kante this summer transfer window.
Kante is easily regarded as the best holding midfielder in the game right now and is a main reason why we were so defensively sound before Maurizio Sarri came in and decided to play the Frenchman in a more forward thinking attack.
But there was some speculation during the summer transfer window which suggested that French giants PSG were keen to try and take Kante back to his homeland, especially after he reportedly became unsettled under life with Sarri, but that does not seem to be the case under Frank Lampard.
He has been played in his more usual role just in front of the back-line this season and is starting to look like the world class midfielder that he developed into when he arrived at Stamford Bridge.
Despite all the transfer speculation surrounding his future at the club, Lampard quickly poured cold water on those rumours at his press conference on Friday.
“N’Golo is one of the best midfield players in the world,” Lampard said.
“He has everything I really want to work with.
“This season has been tough for him because of injuries. It’s nice to see him fresh.
“N’Golo is so important to us as a team. We need him regularly and hopefully we’ll have that now.”
At the end of the day Kante is world class and we would be massive fools to let the man go in the summer window.[the_ad id=”164″]
