Players Chelsea Could Sign As Kante’s Replacement

For Chelsea fans that are up to date with news surrounding the club, there have been talks that N’golo Kante has turned down a contract offer from Chelsea. The offer was reportedly a 2-year contract renewal, but it is believed that the player wanted more years/commitment from the club.

Many sources are predicting that Chelsea might not return with an improved offer, especially because of N’golo Kante’s injuries and fitness problems for Chelsea. Since the beginning of last season, Kante has missed a considerable amount of matches for Chelsea.

So, that means Chelsea will start looking elsewhere for defensive midfielders soon, so let’s explore some exciting options that Chelsea have going forward.

Players similar to N’golo Kante That Chelsea Can Buy

Amadou Haidara 

Manchester United were interested in Malian international last winter, but nothing came out of that. Haidara is an impressive midfielder who is capable of growing into the player that N’golo Kante is. Haidara is comfortable on the ball, quick, and also defensively solid, he is a fantastic option for Chelsea.

Haidara is currently valued at €20M by Transfermkt.

Romeo Lavia

A “beast” in the making, no wonder Chelsea tried to sign him for €50M just months after Southampton signed him from Manchester City. Lavia is the complete defensive midfielder and at just 18, he has all it takes to become a real star in the future. Manchester knew of his talents and that’s why they slapped a buy-back clause in the deal that took him to Southampton.

It will be difficult to land Lavia anytime soon, as Southampton will resist, and Manchester City could even try to sign him back to avoid rivals getting their hand on the Belgian.

Moises Caicedo

Another Premier League name that has been linked with a move to bigger clubs. Ever since Caicedo’s fantastic performance in a 4-0 win over Manchester United last season, fans and pundits have started paying more attention to the Ecuadorian. His playing style is the closest to N’golo Kante in the Premier League, and working under Graham Potter again could favor Chelsea if they choose to sign the South American.

Caicedo is valued at around €25M by Transfermkt, but it would take more than that to get Brighton to do business.

It is impossible to find a perfect N’golo Kante replacement, but these players could develop into something close to what the Frenchman has been at Chelsea.
