The French midfielder has come in for a lot of praise for his performances this season as the Blues go in search of their second Champions League title.

Former Blues star Ramires feels it's tough for a defensive midfielder to win the Ballon d'Or, but feels winning two European trophies in the space of two months would aid his chances.

"I watch Kante play and there's a movie in my head because I see myself. He plays, he's got a highlight reel, but no one sees him wanting to show up off the field," the Brazilian toldcMais Futebol, as per Goal.

"He's very calm, always quiet. He's an extraordinary player. He's in every corner of the field. In defence, in the middle, in attack, on the sides. He's among the best in the world. The way he's playing is impressive.

"He may turn out to be one of the top three in the world.

"But it's hard for a defensive midfielder to come in and win a Ballon d'Or. It would be deserved, yes [if he won the Champions League and Euro 2020]."

Here are 15 of the biggest stars who have not won the Ballon d"or:
