PSG Transfer Target is Being Wasted at Chelsea

N’Golo Kante is a FIFA World Cup winner and one of the hardest-working midfielders in Europe. Somehow, Frank Lampard at Chelsea FC is misusing him.

According to a report from The Athletic, Lampard deployed several formations this season (4-3-3, 4-2-3-1, and 3-4-2-1) and while Chelsea averaged 57.4 percent possession, goals from their midfield players were few and far between.

Writers Tom Worville and Liam Twomey explain that the key to offensive success for Chelsea is getting their midfielders to move the ball forward to the team’s attacking players in a good area to score.

The numbers show that when Kante is in a midfield of three, his statistics take a hit when it comes to chances created, passes into the opposition’s final third, and progressive passes.

Unfortunately, while Chelsea under Lampard and Maurizio Sarri previously prefer a 4-3-3 formation, Kante thrives in a midfield of two. That’s how he helped France win the World Cup (alongside Paul Pogba).

Kante has been injured quite a bit this season but the 29-year-old is still considered one of the best midfielders in the world. With Financial Fair Play expected to be relaxed due to the coronavirus crisis and Chelsea willing to sell, Paris Saint-Germain could finally land the midfielder they’ve coveted for years.

According to recent reporting, Chelsea has put a price tag of €80M-€90M, which is too high for Juventus where Sarri would be keen on bringing his former player to Turin.

Kante doesn’t have the size that PSG’s sporting director would like but the chance to sign Kante and pair him with Marco Verratti might be too much for Leonardo to pass up.

  1. Kante is the best of best in the world but he deserves 120m€ in post Corona market. In terms of chelsea, we must bring one agrasive holding midfielder who could give cover for the defenders chelsea defence Higley exposed because all the midfielder we have are central (attacking )minded,including kante, Jourginho, barkley ,mount, mario pasalic Robin Loftus Cheek. We have to sell kante orjoginho we have also sell barkley & bring back mario pasalic from loan, sell bautshayi offload Giroud that is vestigial offload pedro,willan& bring back Jermy Boga just for 12m€ .Emerson pallmiri . Sell 2 of zouma ,cherstensen or tomori buy 2 world class defenders ,1 world class striker, 1 world class left full back . Please don’t repeat the same mistakes we made on Kevin De burune& Muhammed Sahara on jermy boga (who)performing at high level in seri A &mario Pasilic(who is performing better than Philip couthinho).don’t waste money for sancho & couthinho. At the end sell up to 10 loaned players.
