Frank Leboeuf believes Chelsea target can ‘substitute Kante’ and make ‘terrific’ partnership

The transfer window is now a few days old and we have already seen so many crazy stories bubbling up and so much going on.

It’s going to be a super busy couple of months for Chelsea coming up especially, with the club open to selling so many of their current squad, whilst also looking to bring new players in.

The biggest talking point over the last few days has been Chelsea’s pursuit of Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo, who has seemingly become the priority target for the club this summer.

Things look to be moving positively there, with latest updates coming out from Fabrizio Romano over night.

Caicedo would be a very popular choice amongst Chelsea fans, and seemingly too with one former player and club captain, Frank Leboeuf.

The former French international was speaking about the rumours in his latest extensive and exclusive Chelsea FC column for Si & Dan Talk Chelsea this week, and he believes Caicedo can be a perfect partner for Enzo Fernandez.

He said: “I think Moises Caicedo from Brighton can be a perfect partner for Enzo Fernandez. Knowing that N’Golo Kante is going, Mateo Kovacic is going, Jorginho left, you need people for that position. I think Caicedo and Enzo is a good match, but we will also need more in that role coming in in case of injuries and suspensions.

“These two are terrific players, but they will need to find a way to combine their skills together to make sure it works and they gel. Enzo is a very good at doing the kind of Kovacic-task. Caicedo is the type of player who can substitute Kante, so it can work, absolutely.”
