Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has heaped praise on Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe has burst onto the scene in France this season, scoring 19 goals in 32 games in his first full season for the Ligue Un leaders.
He is the reported subject of a £96million bid from Manchester United, while Arsenal and Real Madrid have also been heavily linked.
The name of Chelsea has not been mentioned in relation to the 18-year-old’s future as often, but Kante’s comments might herald the start of their charm offensive.
“What he does at his age is exceptional,” said his international teammate.
“He’s shown things in Ligue Un and Champions League – this is the choice of the coach.
“In any case, his integration is helped by the presence of quite a few Monaco players.
“Those who are here today deserve their place. There are quite a few Ligue Un players, everything is going well.”
