Johnson: Why Chelsea Must Sell Kante Now

Former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has advised Chelsea to sell N’Golo Kante during the January transfer window if both parties can’t meet up on a deal.

Recall that Kante rejected a new contract offer at Stamford Bridge as reports suggest the defensive midfielder is prepared to leave on a free transfer.

However, Johnson in a chat with BoyleSports, said that the Blues should sell Kante while they can as his contract expires at the end of the season.

“Chelsea should possibly cash in on N’Golo Kante,’ Johnson told BoyleSports.

“He’s been linked with many clubs that might want him. They’re struggling to agree on a deal with him too.

“If Kante wants to stay and play then I’m sure Chelsea will want him to. But there’s always a business decision when a player might want too much, or the club is giving them too little – then they should shake hands and part ways.”


Style of play


A dynamic, diminutive, and disciplined player.] Kanté is known for his relentless energy and excellent ball-winning abilities as a box-to-box midfielder in the centre of the pitch.This is attributed to his strong positional sense, off the ball movement, and ability to read the game.


Predominantly known for his tactical awareness, intelligence, anticipation, and the defensive aspect of his game—his ability to tackle and regain possession, intercept passes, and block shots—Kanté is also capable of playmaking from inside his own half and is an efficient passer on the counter-attack, helping kick start attacking plays immediately after winning back the ball. He is also quick up and down the pitch and often makes late attacking runs in to the box.


A late bloomer, by the age of 21, Kanté had only made one senior appearance in the second tier of French football. He credits his calm and composed demeanor on the pitch to his gradual rise through three levels in the football league pyramid.[110]
