Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent has claimed West Ham midfielder Declan Rice will be an upgrade on Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.
“For me, Declan Rice would be an upgrade,” Bent told talkSPORT.
“Not only because he can play that role really, really well, he can get about the pitch, has got good energy, reads the game really well.
“Not only that as well, he can drop into centre half, that’s two positions he can play.
“N’Golo Kante has been a superb footballer and still is a great footballer. He won the Premier League with Leicester, went to Chelsea and won the Premier League and won the World Cup back in 2018.
“I just think for a season-and-a-half now he’s not played in that role we know he is so good at.”
