Thomas Tuchel Says N’Golo Kante Is His Dream Player Amid Declan Rice Links



Thomas Tuchel has no plans to rest on his laurels after guiding Chelsea to Champions League glory.

Taking a Blues squad that he inherited from Frank Lampard in January all the way in Europe’s elite club competition is no mean feat, but it’s now time to stamp his own authority.

With the transfer window set to open shortly, there’s talk of Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia completing a stunning £200million triple swoop to bolster Tuchel’s first-team squad ahead of next season.

Amid talk that the German wants to sign at least three new players – a right-wing back, a central midfielder and a striker – Adama Traore, Declan Rice and Romelu Lukaku are three names being linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.

If Granovskaia is able to pull these deals off then Chelsea will be a serious force to be reckoned with in the Premier League title race next season.

Although any prospective signing this summer will have to be as important as N’Golo Kante.

Speaking about the Frenchman last month, Tuchel revealed the midfielder was his ‘dream’ player who is key to Chelsea’s chances of winning major trophies.

“He is the guy you need to win trophies. That is why I am so, so happy he is here [at Chelsea],” Tuchel said. “I have dreamed about this player, fighting for this player at any club I was coaching at and now he is my player.

“For me he is an example, an unbelievable input for any team in the world.

“He will be key.

“N’Golo is a nice guy, almost a shy person. He is quiet, he likes his own quality time and he is not loud.

“I see him smile a lot, very shy and polite but I am so happy that players like him exist.

“It is a pleasure to watch.

“What he is doing with his mentality, a real helper. He always gives everything to help anybody on the pitch and such a nice, humble and quiet guy.”

Tuchel has already been proved right about Kante as the 30-year-old delivered a man-of-the-match performance as Chelsea beat Manchester City in the Champions League final.
