Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has built a reputation for being one of the world’s most defensive midfielders over the years, and the 29-year-old is still a world-class player.

Chelsea bought Kante from Leicester City back in 2016 for over £30m, and the Frenchman has been a top player ever since.

Meanwhile, former West Ham academy chief Terry Westley, has likened one of their young stars to Kante and says he could be next to burst on to the scene.

Wesley has hailed 19-year-old West Ham central midfielder Keenan Appiah-Forson, and he believes he has what it takes to reach Kante’s height as the best combative midfielder in the world.

“I left when he was still a scholar but I’ll never forget how committed Keenan was,” Westley told The Athletic.

“He always listened and wanted to improve. I can tell he’s really enjoying himself and that’s what warmed the staff to him. You could always rely on him to do well.

“Keenan’s small but he’s such a tough boy. He’s similar to N’Golo Kante in terms of his work ethic because he’s so difficult to mark. Keenan has a lot of potential and it’s great that young players are getting an opportunity at West Ham under David Moyes. Keenan could be next.”

Meanwhile, Kante who had a slow start under Thomas Tuchel seems to have rediscovered his best form, and was a beast in the Champions League clash against Atletico last week.
