Chelsea: Blues given ‘huge boost’ after N’Golo Kante update
Chelsea have been handed a ‘huge boost’ as reporter Matt Law of The Telegraph shares an exciting update on midfielder N’Golo Kante.
The Lowdown: Potter under fire…
Graham Potter has been under serious pressure as of late with very disappointing on-field results failing to impress supporters.
The Blues have just one Premier League win under their belt since the turn of year, a 1-0 home win over Palace, and haven’t scored more than one goal in a single match since 2023’s beginning (Transfermarkt).
Reports have suggested that Chelsea have even sounded out possible replacements for Potter and it’s safe to say the Englishman needs all the help he can get right now.
The Latest: Potter handed ‘huge boost’ at Chelsea…
Law, taking to social media, shared some pretty big news out of Stamford Bridge this week as Chelsea are now set for a ‘huge’ Kante boost.
“Chelsea set for huge boost with N’Golo Kante closing in on a first-team return….and a new contract.”
The Verdict: Massive…
The experienced figurehead’s pending return will come as a mighty relief to Potter and co who could now see some real steal added to Chelsea’s midfield.
Kante’s injury has seen him start just two league games this season and the Frenchman’s importance is perhaps exemplified by his stats from last season.
Over 2021/2022, the relentless defensive midfield star averaged more successful challenges per 90 than any Chelsea regular in the top flight (WhoScored).
His presence is surely missed in Potter’s starting eleven, and with his deal set to expire at the end of this season as things stand, the fact Chelsea are also closing in on fresh terms is even more good news.
