Leboeuf: Why Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel doesn’t need any January transfers

Chelsea legend Frank Leboeuf insists Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel doesn’t need to sign any players in January.

Chelsea have enjoyed a superb start to the new season, winning five of our seven league fixtures to climb to the top of the English top-flight.

Leboeuf told Ladbrokes: “I don’t think Chelsea need to sign any players in January.

“The thing for me is to see how N’Golo Kante is going to do compared to other seasons where he’s struggling and he’s come back and shown his strength.

“Jorginho and Kovacic are fantastic players when they have the ball and they do their best when they defend but there is no comparison to N’Golo Kante.

“Kante is like the mosquito you want to kill late at night when you know where he is but you just can’t get it, that’s N’Golo Kante.

“You think you’ve passed him and taken over him, but no, he’ll be there and he’s going to grab the ball and put it into transition and make the defence offensively.

“There is only one N’Golo Kante, so if he comes back quickly and to his best Chelsea won’t need to buy any players. Kante is easily the best player Chelsea have signed in the last five years.

“Edouard Mendy is also up there as he’s made a huge difference – like Ederson did at Manchester City – by stabilising the defence.”
