Arsenal star Laurent Koscielny believes Chelsea’s midfield tyro N’Golo Kante is the best player in the Premier League.
Having powered Leicester City’s fairytale title win last season, Kante looks set to lift the Premier League trophy again this season with Chelsea.
“For me he is the best player of the championship,” Koscielny told a news conference ahead of Les Bleus’ World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg.
“He had the aptitude to adapt in his new club, he had a difficult first month but since the loss to Arsenal, he has progressed enormously.
“When you have a player like that in midfield, who gets a lot of balls back…
“He knows what he can and cannot do. He harasses his opponents and gives the ball to his offensive players.”
