Welcome N’Golo Kante


Recommended Posts


Apparently he has a £20 million buyout clause in his contract which, if true, almost makes him a no-brainer.

I don't see us getting Vidal which means Nainggolan and one other, and this lad could be it. I'm not one for going overboard after one good season but that price is roughly the same as Imbula (who we should've signed but didn't for whatever reason) and £5 million LESS than we sold Ramires for.

The thought of him and Nainggolan being Cesc's minders in midfield is absolutely mouthwatering.

I can't see us signing both of them when their are other places in the team that need strengthening.

You're right that there's other areas we need to strengthen but I think we sorely need midfielders. Realistically we've got Fabregas, Loftus-Cheek and hopefully Nainggolan (shouldn't assume but I'm hopeful). Then you've got Matic who could find a new lease of life under Conte IF he sticks around and puts in the work. With Oscar and Mikel seemingly off that isn't a lot of depth so I think we need two midfielders.

Kanté is the midfielder I really want us to sign. If we cannot get him then I hope it'll be because he'll stay with Leicester to play in the CL. Someone wrote earlier that the worst that can happen is him moving to Arsenal. I fully agree, they have been missing exactly his kind of player from their midfield.

20m buyout clause, as Merson likes to say it's a no brainier. I can see Arsenal sniffing around him though, but if the papers, pundits and fans want Arsenal to buy Kante, Wenger won't do it out of principal lol.

Not happening. Why the hell would he move to a non-CL team if every top team out there wants him?

We should however bring in Idrissa Gueye from demoted Aston Villa. Very similar player, just unlucky to be playing for a crap team.

He would actually make Arsenal a real prem candidate. Hope he doesn't end up there. Wenger is such an idiot he will probably pass on him as he is the most obvious choice.

Honestly his suggestions are all African players, it's just daft. I mean you don't see me mentioning the likes if Tom Cleverley just because he's English.

My suggestions are all African, sure. But I don't suggest the first best player. I suggest the top of the line from African players.

 

For all intent and purpose N'golo Kante is also African. Most people agree that for a DM African-origin players are the way to go. As someone mentioned 4,1 tackles per game (second only to Kante; OPTA even claims he has the second most in Europe), 4 interceptions per game (second only to Kante). Plus he actually covers more ground than Kante, is a better passer or a better dribller(he has his faults obviously like being more of a card risk and havinhg the occasional mindmelt).

 

Basically: If you want to buy Kante, but can't the obvious second choice is Idrissa Gueye. And for one thing he won't cost even 1/4 of what Kante does and will obviously say yes to playing for us.

 

And if getting such stats was so easy than how come no other player from the bottom of the league managed to do the same?

Idrissa Gueye is the cream of the crop of all the teams that were relegated. Plus he has a good working history with Hazard.

We wont be signing anyone from Villa.

Their team was woeful last season, not one of them is fit to line our bench never mind starting side.

 

I guess you would prefer Mikel or Matic over Gueye then... Figures.

Matic is a better player, he had a poor season but so did everyone. Matic remember was the best defensive midfielder in the league a season back. But yeah a relegated African who has looked every bit of a villa level player is what we should be looking at....

Mikel ideally is not a first team starter, he's squad filler and even at that he's better than Gueye.

We get it you love to link African's, trouble is 90% of the names you list are not good enough for Chelsea.
