There are speculation and news on the NGolo Kante transfer rumours, reports claimed that Kante has been linked with a move away from Chelsea, but the Chelsea boss isn’t drawn in such speculation
Frank Lampard says N’Golo Kante is ‘vital’ for Chelsea and his presence will help the team to move forward and he has no plan of selling him.
Inter have been the top team who is likely interested to sign N’golo Kante from Chelsea. Earlier there was a transfer rumour that Chelsea was looking to replace Kante with the West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.
Chelsea has been the team who is mostly involved in the dealing of players in the summer transfer window, but Lampard never had any doubt over Kante he said he isn’t on the market.
Lampard told BBC Radio 5 Live “I think very big club want to sign a player like N’Golo Kante,”
“I have seen those reports as well. He is an unbelievable player and person and I certainly don’t want to lose a player like him. He’s a great asset and will play a significant role in terms of what I’m trying to do.
“We can certainly talk about the attacking players we have but someone like N’Golo and the work he does in midfield… It was a difficult year for him last year because of the injuries.
“He came into the season with an injury and it was a domino effect through the year. It was probably a culmination of four or five years of games, so I’m really excited to have him fit. He looks fresh, he’s a big deal to me.
“Of course I want to keep N’Golo.”
Chelsea’s new signing and dealings of different players have led the concerns that the club’s youngsters could be set to sustain.
Lampard has full faith in his young guns that can easily be seen in the last season as well. Lampard was praised for putting faith in his young sensations. The signing of the players like Thiago Silva, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, and Timo Werner has given the indication that the players will eventually fight for their place in the starting X1.
Lampard replied when asked how he would organize and unite the new players.“I do have an idea of what I want to do,”
“It certainly won’t be stepping on the toes of the younger players. I think what the young players have done for the team we have seen that in the last season. It’s normal as a younger player, you have to compete against the different challenges over the period of time.
Step one, set yourself in the team, and do well, get a lot of appreciation. Step two if you’re at a club like Chelsea you have to be competitive as the competition will be there year-after-year. I’m not concerned about the young players, they’re going to play a huge part in our plans.
“The ones that were there last year will definitely be involved. The one thing I definitely felt as manager was that when I couldn’t bring players in, I couldn’t make changes in how I wanted us to play in terms of personnel.
“It always helps when you’re fresh and you’re new that you can bring in some players and say, ‘This is the way I want to go’. So, I feel like I will have more options now to move forward.”
