Ian Wright has lavished praise on N’Golo Kante following the midfielder’s sparkling debut season at Chelsea.

The 26-year-old has been a regular fixture in the first team at Stamford Bridge since arriving at the club from Leicester City last summer.

Kante has earned plenty of praise for his performances this season and was voted as the PFA player of the year following his impressive campaign.

The Frenchman helped Chelsea win the Premier League in Antonio Conte’s first season at the club but was unable to prevent the Blues from slipping to defeat in the FA Cup final against Arsenal on Saturday.

Nevertheless, Kante has established himself as one of the finest midfielders in Europe in recent seasons and Arsenal legend Wright has nothing but praise for the France international.

Speaking to BBC Sport on Saturday, Wright said: “He gets a lot of stick for being not technically gifted… he’s fantastic, he’s just got everything.”

Chelsea will look to challenge for the Champions League title next season after booking their return to Europe’s elite club competition.
