£32 million was the transfer fee that Chelsea had to pay in order to sign N’GoloKante from Leicester City, the French player completed his move to Stamford Bridge on July 16 of 2016 and so far it seems like he has impressed the head coach Antonio Conte.
N’GoloKanté has performed in all 3 of the opening league matches of Chelsea and Antonio Conte has stated himself that he has been impressed by what he has seen in relation to the 25 year old French midfielder.
On August 15, Chelsea played against West Ham in their opening match of the season 2016-17 and Antonio Conte said: “N’Golo is a great player, a great buy. He’s important for the team; he has good technique and fantastic stamina. He’s able to cover a lot of space and help his team-mates always. We are happy with his performance but I was happy with the performance of all my players.”
This was the statement released by Antonio Conte as the Italian manager said that he was impressed by the performance that N’GoloKanté displayed during that match. Chelsea went on to win that game with a final scoreboard of 2-1 and they have continued their string of positive results with successive triumphs over Watford and Burnley.
N’GoloKanté was featured in all of these matches and his main task is to provide a new layer of defense for the backline of Chelsea.
For a fee of £32 million, Chelsea made a very impressive signing as N’GoloKanté is being highly rated and praised for what he accomplished during the previous 2015-16 of the Premier League as the French midfielder played a huge role in Leicester City’s title winning season. He is hoping to do the same thing and win more titles but with Chelsea this time around.
