After an impressive showing in Leicester’s 2015/16 title winning campaign, midfielder N’Golo Kante is on the brink of a move to Chelsea FC.
As reported earlier, Premier League giants Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign French midfielder N’Golo Kante from Leicester City. A fee reported to be worth £29 million has been agreed between the two parties. Kante would undoubtedly, solidify the Blues midfield, and give Antonio Conte just the kind of player he has been looking for.
The Chelsea faithful rejoiced on Twitter over the possibility of Kante moving to the Stamford Bridge:
N’Golo Kante!!!! I serve a True God Wate!!! Up you Blues!!!! @chelseafc well done wai

Kante is conventional and he’s still good at it. Verrati is modern.

@afcjonathan Sturggle to create as much as the should be, and like you said will struggle to break teams down, Kante is a workhorse, Matic >

While there were few who compared him to Blues legend Claudio Makelele:
Really hope we sign Kante, absolute warrior. Reminds me of Makélélé

“The Kante Role” @ChelseaFC

Chelsea are very close to signing resurrected Makelele in the body of a man called N’golo Kante for £27M.

If CFC Secure The Services Of
Kante, Then They Have Succeeded In
Getting A Higher Version Of Makelele
With V12 Engine. #CFC

If these reports are true regarding Kante then we’ve finally replaced Makelele at last. I know their both different players but very close

Makélélé didn’t join us until he was 30, Kanté is 25 not even the finished article yet and easily attainable for <£30M.
