Kante, having recovered from a hamstring strain, is back in training and eyeing a squad place for Saturday’s Premier League game at Bournemouth.
Blues boss Antonio Conte confirmed: “Kante is progressing well. I’m very happy. I saw him in a good physical condition.
“For sure in this moment, we have to keep calm and find the right moment to utilise him and put him in the team.
“Now it will be very easy to tell him play.. we must pay attention to find the best solution for him. He’s great.”
