- N'golo Kante will not be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season, claims Frank Lampard
- The 29-year-old has been linked with several top clubs in Europe after struggling under the English boss
- Kante for the first time in his career in England did not win any trophy in the 2019-20 season
N'Golo Kante is going nowhere this summer according to Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.
The French international has been linked with a move to several top European sides including Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Man United.
But Blues boss has insisted that the 29-year-old is still a huge part of his plans and reveals it is a privilege to manage the Frenchman.
“In terms of N’Golo, I’ve seen some talk and reports about him and his future at the club.
“I’ve said it a lot of times about N’Golo – one of the best midfield players in the world.
“I would have loved to be able to play with him. He has everything.
“Coming back to Chelsea and having N’Golo Kante is something I really want to appreciate and work with,” Lampard quoted by Dail Star.
Kante has endured difficult times under Maurizio Sarri and Lampard but was top-notch during Antonio Conte's spell at Stamford Bridge.
And it has led to reports about the former Leicester City midfielder leaving for another reunion with Conte at Inter as well as a potential spell at Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskajer.
But according to French news media outlet Telefoot Chaine, Kante and Chelsea had never discussed any possibility about leaving west London this summer.
The 2019/20 season was Kante’s first without a trophy since he joined Leicester in the summer of 2015 but they managed to secure a Champions League spot last term.
And the new season draws closer, Lampard has managed to secure the signings of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr, Thiago Silva and most recently Kai Havertz.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Premier League side Chelsea are reportedly ready to sell France international N'Golo Kante this summer only if the Blues can get the sum of £80m which is around N41 billion.
N'Golo Kante is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League considering his superb performances for the Blues and when he was playing for Leicester City.
The World Cup winner was among the players that helped Leicester City win the Premier League title before he made the move to Chelsea.
