Chelsea star N’Golo Kante could have joined Middlesbrough after fan spotted him while playing on holiday in 2013 – The Sun

N'GOLO KANTE could have signed for Middlesbrough in 2013 – had the Teesside outfit listened to the advice of one eagle-eyed fan.

Boro supporter Dennis Abbot called on the club to make a move for the Frenchman while he was on holiday in Normandy.

Abbot watched Kante play for Caen in 2013 – two years before Leicester poached him from Ligue 1 in a £5.6million deal.

And, having recognised his enormous talent, he immediately brought the midfielder to Boro's attention.

The fan labelled the Frenchman "an outstanding creative player" in a tweet sent to the Teesside club.

Abbot wrote: "Boro scouts, tell Tony Mowbray to check out Caen midfielder N'Golo Kante before Wenger gets him. Top top player."

The club acknowledged Abbot's comment, saying it had been "passed on to scouts".

To which he replied: "That's great. He's an outstanding creative player, winning plaudits from media & players alike."
