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.
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.”
