Kanté excelled as a defensive central midfielder for Leicester City as they won the Premier League in 2016 and then in the same position for Chelsea - after joining for £32 million - as they won the league the following season.
"Dortmund also know that it's gonna be very, very hard to keep him if he doesn't want to renew his contract".
"[Eden] Hazard is not a serious injury but he will not be able to play tomorrow", Sarri said ahead of Thursday's encounter. And I think this is not one of the best characteristics of Kante, but it was only a reaction to the difficulties'.
Kante's rate of tackles and interceptions have plummeted this season as he operates higher up the pitch in Sarri's 4-3-3 system, but Sarri said that Chelsea's midfield problems against Tottenham were not rooted in tactics. In the first 10 games of the season, the 26-year-old striker scored five League goals and three assists.
"He lost the position, he attacked too much the other box".
Olivier Giroud impressed against PAOK Salonika
Chelsea midfielder Jorginho believes that his side need to improve how they defend counter-attacks, after admitting that the Blues "got very stretched" during their defeat against Tottenham on Saturday. He wasn't the only player who failed to deliver, but because we rely on his influence so heavily, we suffered with him being off the boil. "The target in my mind is very clear, it is to win something and in the long time to become the best team in Europe".
The only other doubt for the Blues is versatile wide player Victor Moses who is struggling with a back issue.
"I am anxious because 25 days ago he had an injury, a back injury", Sarri said.
We should see wholesale changes at the back as Sarri once again rests his key defenders in the Europa League meaning Marcos Alonso, David Luiz, Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger will all make way.
Providing an injury update at yesterday's pre-match press conference, manager Maurizio Sarri revealed that the former Nigeria worldwide will play no part in the game against the Greek Super League side due to a back problem. "He just needs to adapt to what the manager wants". So it's normal he wouldn't be top of his physical condition.
