Ray Wilkins believes that N’Golo Kante needs to improve his long-range passing for Chelsea.

The French midfielder has earned huge amounts of praise for his performances for the Blues this season following his transfer to Chelsea from Leicester City last summer.

Kante has been ever-present in the Chelsea side this season and has been rewarded for his fine displays by being crowned as the PFA player of the year.

The 26-year-old will be hoping to win a Premier League and FA Cup double at Chelsea this season in his first campaign in west London.

However, although Wilkins has been hugely impressed by Kante, the former Chelsea coach still feels that the midfielder can improve his range of passing.

Wilkins told Sky Sports News HQ on Tuesday morning: “His passing can improve over longer distances, but in saying that he’s got an 86 per cent pass [success] rate this year, so no one would be too disappointed with that.”
