Timo Werner has named N’Golo Kante as the Chelsea player who has impressed him the most having joined the club in the summer.
Werner has scored four goals in 13 Premier League appearances for the Blues thus far and has admitted he has struggled to adapt to the English game.
But he insists he is enjoying life in the capital and has been impressed by the quality of his teammates; Kante in particular.
“We have so many good players,” Werner told Sky Deutschland.
“But one is special, even if many know how good he is: N’Golo Kanté stands out in real life.
“What he runs away from the ball and what kind of competitor he is in training – unbelievable.
“If you think he can’t get the ball, then he’ll steal it from behind you. This is impressive.
“Although I knew beforehand that N’Golo was probably the best six in the world, he always surprised me positively in training.
“Having him on your own team is a blessing.
“Even offensively, he just marches so much. And what’s more, he’s just the dearest person on earth.
“As an example: he is knocked down from behind and laughs at himself first. It’s really impressive how someone can have such peace of mind as N’Golo.
“It is something special to be able to play with him.”
