3 players who could replace N’golo Kante at Chelsea

Midfielders Chelsea could target to replace Kante.

N'golo is wanted by Tuchel at PSG. 3 players who could replace n'golo kante at chelsea 3 players who could replace N’golo Kante at Chelsea 443c3 1528774416 800
N’golo is wanted by Tuchel at PSG.

The transfer window brings with it the usual rumor mill – outlandish claims and crazy reporting as to which of the world’s greatest super-stars could be making big-money moves, and this season has been no different.

One of the more surprising suggestions, however, which would particularly worry Chelsea fans, is that midfield maestro and 2-time Premier League winner N’golo Kante could soon depart the west London club.

French champions Paris-Saint Germain have been touted as a likely destination, with newly appointed coach Thomas Tuchel particularly keen to recruit a solid defensive midfielder.

Kante has been a revelation in England, with the ‘PFA Player of the Year 2017’ being one of the key components of Leicester and Chelsea’s successful Premier League campaigns in 2015 and 2016.

Although diminutive in size, Kante is an absolute giant in stature on the pitch, known well for his energy and excellent ball-winning abilities as a box-to-box midfielder, as well as his positional sense, athleticism, intelligence, versatility, and ability to read the game.

Despite Stamford Bridge chiefs unlikely to sanction a move, a season without Champions League football coupled with a massive offer from PSG could, in a shocking turn of events, see everybody’s favorite player leave England.

In such a case, and without further ado, let us take a look at 3 players who could fill in the massive void that would be left as a result:

#3 Arturo Vidal

Vidal may be on his way out of Munich this season. 3 players who could replace n'golo kante at chelsea 3 players who could replace N’golo Kante at Chelsea f9e6a 1528791119 800
Arturo may be on his way out of Munich this season.

Vidal has been one of the world’s most consistent defensive midfielders for quite a while now, having been an integral part of both Juventus and Bayern Munich’s title-winning teams. He has had yet another impressive campaign with Munich, scoring 6 goals and assisting twice.

At 31 years of age, Vidal’s next transfer could be his final major club in Europe and Chelsea would be the perfect destination for him to showcase his wide array of skills. His tremendous experience will come in handy for Chelsea if they are to replace Kante.

Nicknamed “The Warrior’ for his hard-tackling and aggressive, tenacious style of play, the Chilean is a complete midfielder, known for his marking, positional sense, tackling, and anticipation, attributes which allow him to be effective at intercepting passes, winning back possession, and subsequently starting an attack.

Leon Goretzka’s move to Bavaria is likely to see the Chilean deemed surplus to requirement, and Chelsea could come calling. Already linked with the London club during January, Vidal has always been keen on a reunion with Conte. Although Sarri is  replace Conte, the combative midfidier is widely admired and could prove to be a very smart buy.

#2 Jean Michael Seri

The Blues are believed to be in ‘advanced talks’ with Seri.

Robust and dynamic with an eye for goal, Seri has been on the radar of Europe’s top clubs for quite a while now, following his exploits with Nice. In three seasons, the defensive minded Ivorian has scored a handy 12 goals with 20 assists to his name.

I’m not used to seeing such a talent in midfield. Short passing, long passing, tactical intelligence, distance shooting, personality, organizing play, that last magic pass … ‘madre mia!’ He would do very well at Barca! He can play anywhere in the middle. Seri is fantastic. I can say, without hesitation, that he has what we call Barca DNA.” – Xavi on Seri.

Aptly nicknamed ‘the African Xavi,’ Seri’s performances have led to great intrest Roma, Barcelona, City and Arsenal, but it is Chelsea who are front runner in the race for the Ivorian’s signature.

As stated by Xavi himself, the midfielder’ unique vision and passing ability would greatly aid Chelsea, as it would take some pressure off of Fabregas in the middle of the park. If Kante does depart, Seri may be Chelsea’s best bet at a like-for-like replacement. Hardworking and consistent, the Ivorian could finally be the man to solve Chelsea’s midfield problems.

#1 Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

Milinkovic-Savic has been linked to Real, but Chelsea could yet swoop. 3 players who could replace n'golo kante at chelsea 3 players who could replace N’golo Kante at Chelsea 960fc 1528777289 800
Milinkovic-Savic has been linked to Real, but Chelsea could yet swoop.

One of the hottest topics of discussion going into this World Cup has been, the future of Lazio’s midfield star Milinkovic-Savic.

The Serb stands at a staggering 6 feet 3 inches and is a member of a new breed of midfielders who can dominate in the air, whilst gliding across the pitch with grace and impeccable ball control. His aggressive nature and confidence in possession leave little room to doubt his ability to successfully fulfill any positional requirements his manager asks of him.

The 22-year-old possesses the brute strength to ensure he is not easily pushed off the ball, but he is more than just a work-horse as he has incredible vision and passing range, which would see him settle into the Premier League with relative ease.

Although the midfielder is believed to be content at Lazio, with Real Madrid also intrested, Chelsea should pursue the Serb as a genuine transfer target. Equally capable in defense and offense, Sergej is the perfect prototype of a midfielder, and would undoubtedly be a huge hit at the Bridge.

Coutinho confirm loan approve

Coutinho confirm loan approve coutinho 1

Barcelona has had a busy summer transfer window. They recently announced via Twitter the signing of the summer, Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. However, they still have work to do in order to keep their status at the top of La Liga.
This could involve some outgoings. It’s obvious that within every club, there will be players that don’t want to remain. In Barcelona’s case, it seems likely that Philippe Coutinho is growing frustrated. He cannot complain about game time too much, however, his future at Camp Nou is under close scrutiny, especially not Griezmann has arrived.
According to Calciomercato, Philippe Coutinho has approved of a move away. The 27-year-old is subject to a 2-year loan spell at his former club Liverpool, with an option to buy at the end of the 2 years for just £88m. The Italian outlet reports that Coutinho is all for a return to England.
Coutinho left Liverpool in a bitter fashion. He left the club because he saw no chance of lifting European silverware with them. Then, just that season in which he was cup-tied, Liverpool reached the Champions League final and lost to Real Madrid.
However, they made amends this season, as they beat Tottenham to the Champions League honour, for the sixth time in their history. Coutinho could have been involved in this achievement, however, Liverpool knocked his new side out of the competition in the semi-finals.
Coutinho is a player of immense flair, so it’s bizarre that it hasn’t worked out for him in Spain. Perhaps Ernesto Valverde wishes to add a new dynamic to the Catalans’ play, but either way, it doesn’t look likely right now that Coutinho will be involved in their future.
On the other hand, the Premier League would welcome back Coutinho with open arms. Given that Eden Hazard has left to join Real Madrid, it would be good to see a player of his magnitude come back to set the English league alight. Liverpool certainly wouldn’t complain either, because it would add further creativity to their electric front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Discusion between chelsea keeper and peter cech

HELSEA fans went wild on Reddit after Kepa Arrizabalaga was pictured with Petr Cech during a training session in Ireland earlier this

The Blues are currently across the Irish Sea for a two-game tour, having drawn with Bohemians in Frank Lampard’s first game as manager on Wednesday night.
Ahead of that clash, Lampard’s Chelsea squad trained at Carton House in Maynooth on Tuesday.
And Cech – who has been installed as a technical and performance adviser at Stamford Bridge – was photographed out on the training pitches.
The ex-goalkeeper, who played 494 times in 11 years at Chelsea and won 13 major trophies, took time to have a quick one-to-one chat with the club’s current No 1 keeper Arrizabalaga.

 

 

 

The most expensive shot-stopper in world football after signing from Athletic Bilbao for £71million last summer, the 24-year-old Spaniard kept 14 clean sheets in 36 Premier League matches in his first season at the club.
Arrizabalaga’s first 12 months in west London was somewhat pockmarked by an incident with former manager Maurizio Sarri during the Carabao Cup final in which he refused to be substituted for back-up keeper Willy Caballero ahead of a penalty shoot-out despite having gone down for cramp twice in extra time.
But the Basque-born ace enjoyed a largely positive first campaign as Chelsea finished third in the Premier League and won the Europa League, with Arrizabalaga saving two penalties in a semi-final shoot-out against Eintracht Frankfurt to send his club to the final.
And Chelsea fans are excited to see what he can learn from club legend Cech, who kept 202 shut-outs in the Premier League for Chelsea including a single-season record 24 under Jose Mourinho in 2004-05, despite missing three games that year.

“Makes me feel very safe. Really love this,” said the original Reddit poster, adding an image of Cech and Arrizabalaga in conversation.
“To become the best, you must learn from the best,” wrote one fan in response.
“This. F***ing. Image. I been waiting for this,” reacted another, while one fan added: “Happy to see them together”.
“Let’s put them both in goal and watch the clean sheet records tumble!” joked one supporter.
One other posted: “I can’t believe him [Cech] and Frank are both back. It still feels so surreal.”
“All my anxiety went away after looking at this,” said another.
