N’Golo Kante has heaped massive praises on Celtic striker Moussa Dembele.

The 20-year-old has been in good form for Celtic, and rumours have linked him with a move to Chelsea, and Kante believes the young Frenchman is good enough to make the French team.

“If Dembele is called up, it will be fully deserved. You do not score the amount of goals that he has scored this season and it goes unnoticed,” Kante told The Sun.

“He has been one of the most prolific strikers in Europe this season. He must be playing with so much confidence and that is always one of the most important things for a striker.

“The coach picks on form. I don’t think the fact he isn’t playing for what people might consider one of the elite European clubs will be held against him.

“The coach gave me a chance when I was at Leicester and Dimitri Payet a chance when he was at West Ham.

“I do not think that is a worry. He’s scoring a lot of goals and playing well — that’s all that matters.”
