Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has reportedly returned to individual training following his absence with a hamstring injury.
The France international suffered the setback during the second Premier League game of the season against Tottenham Hotspur.
He has since been on the sidelines for the Blues, but it appears he could make his comeback following the international break.
According to journalist Nizaar Kinsella, the midfielder was working on some individual drills today with one of the coaches.
It is unclear whether he will be involved in team training by next week, but there are definitely positive signs over his recovery.
Kante has been a mainstay for club and county over the past six years.
Chelsea have looked a better outfit with him in the line-up. The same can be said for France, who will be defending their World Cup title.
Les Bleus will desperately want Kante to make the World Cup squad this winter. Hopefully, Chelsea don’t rush him back to action.
Kante has previously suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury, and new boss Graham Potter needs to be more cautious with him.
