Three possible N’Golo Kante replacements at Chelsea


Every Chelsea fan wants to see N’Golo Kante in the Blues shirt because of the impact he has made on the team but that might not continue for a longer period.

The former Leicester City midfielder is already being linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge as he cannot boast of the same performance when he first joined the club.

European giants like Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Paris Saint Germain are desperate to land the service of the World Cup winner and could be their opportunity should Frank Lampard decide to let him leave.

N’Golo Kante can no longer boast of a future at the club after learning that the club is keen on the signature of West Ham United midfielder, Declan Rice. That could cost him his playing time.

However, three names have been listed as a possible replacement for the France international.

Wilfried Ndidi
The Nigerian international has been solid for Leicester City for the past seasons. He has been attracting interest from Stamford Bridge with his stunning record of tackles and defensive powees at the midfield. Should The West London outfit decide against N’Golo Kante, the Nigerian international could be called upon but the Blues must be ready to pay big as he is also being linked to Paris Saint Germain.

Denis Zakaria
Frank Lampard is known to have great belief in younger talents and that is what makes Denis Zakaria a perfect replacement for N’Golo Kante. The Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder will be able to manage Chelsea’s midfield properly as he can move forward with the ball. He will be less expensive and will jump at any opportunity to join a big side like Chelsea.

Declan Rice
The West Ham United midfielder is one of the reason why N’Golo Kante is being rumoured to leave the club as he is top target for Frank Lampard. He has been in the EPL and well experienced.
