CHELSEA star N’golo Kante insists Celtic striker Moussa Dembele should be called into France’s senior international squad.
The Stamford Bridge midfielder, who won a Premier League medal at Leicester City last year, thinks it is only a matter of time before the prolific 29-goal hitman steps up a level.
Kante believes Dembele’s current form would have attracted the attention of French boss Didier Deschamps.

The Paris-born operator who cost the London club £32million in the summer said: “If Dembele is called up, it will be fully deserved.
“You do not score the amount of goals that he has scored this season and it goes unnoticed.
“He has been one of the most prolific strikers in Europe this season.
“He must be playing with so much confidence and that is always one of the most important things for a striker.
“The coach picks on form. I don’t think the fact he isn’t playing for what people might consider one of the elite European clubs will be held against him.
“The coach gave me a chance when I was at Leicester and Dimitri Payet a chance when he was at West Ham.
“I do not think that is a worry. He’s scoring a lot of goals and playing well — that’s all that matters.”
