N’Golo Kante finished the past season in the best possible form, as he played a pivotal role in helping Chelsea win the Champions League.
There have been calls for Kante to win the Ballon d’Or this year, and former Chelsea defender William Gallas has hailed him as the best player in the world at the moment.
Gallas believes what Kante has done puts him even ahead of strikers.
“Everybody loves N’Golo and it is easy to see why,” Gallas told 101 Great Goals.
“For me at the moment he is the best player in the world.
“I know people will talk about strikers because fans like to see goals and they appreciate attacking players more.
“But if you look at what N’Golo has done since he arrived in England it is phenomenal.
“He won the league with Leicester, then went to Chelsea and won it there, he has won the Europa League and now the Champions League as well as winning the World Cup with France.
“That is amazing, for me he is the best player in the world.”
