25-year-old Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has heaped praise on 18-year-old Monaco star Kylian Mbappe.
The 18-year-old is attracting interest from clubs in the Premier League and the rest of Europe including Real Madrid after scoring 17 goals in all competitions this season.
Mbappe’s display for Monaco this season has seen him earn a first senior call to the French national team and Kante believes he deserves it.
“What he does at his age is exceptional,” Kante.
“He showed things in Ligue 1 and Champions League. Afterwards, is it too early or not… This is the choice of the coach.
“In any case, his integration is facilitated by the presence of quite a few Monaco players
“Those who are here today deserve ample space. There are quite a few Ligue 1 players, everything is going well.”
