Chelsea must do everything possible to keep N’Golo Kante at the club, Dennis Wise has said.
Dennis recently revealed that the Frenchman is still the main guy for the Blues in the middle of the park.
According to him, Kante is very much key to Chelsea’s future plans and it would be a big mistake if he was allowed to move on.
He added that even if players like Mason Mount, Barkley and Kovacic have been decent this season, Kante is very important to the team on and off the pitch.
His words, “I would say the main person is Kante, for sure, and then you can have a mixture of [Mateo] Kovacic, [Ross] Barkley or [Mason] Mount.
“I think it would be out of those four to make up the three which sit in there [in a 4-3-3 formation].
“Mason Mount has done extremely well, and Barkley has gone through a spell of really doing well. It’s difficult to give you the three, but one of them for sure is Kante. I think he is so important to the team to sit in there.
“You’ve also got [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek and young [Billy] Gilmour, so they’re quality players.
“Loftus-Cheek has obviously been out for a while and it would be unfair to all of a sudden try and push him into that category (alongside the main four players). And the young boy Billy Gilmour, just because he’s so young and developing, I think you’ve got to give him time.
“I think definitely Kante and then two out of the three that I mentioned – Kovacic, Barkley and Mount. It’s a great problem to have.
“Mount has done extremely well in spells, and so has Barkley and so has Kovacic – it’s very difficult to break them up.”
