Frank Lampard has revealed that N'Golo Kante has been struggling with the hamstring injury he suffered towards the end of last season but confirmed that he will travel to Japan for the club's pre-season tour.

Despite playing the full 90 minutes of Chelsea's 4-1 win against Arsenal in Baku, Kante was excused from playing in any of France's three post-season matches due to a combination of hamstring and knee injuries.

Kante hasn't featured in either of Lampard's matches so far but the new Chelsea manager stated that he is hopeful the former Leicester City man will be able to take part in full training next week.

Speaking after Chelsea's 4-0 win over St Patrick's Athletic, Lampard said: 'He's good, he's good.

Kante has proven to be a huge success at Stamford Bridge since joining in a £32m deal from Leicester in 2016, helping the club win a trophy in each of his three seasons.

Chelsea won the Premier League in Kante's first season before adding the FA Cup the following year and then the Europa League last term.

Kante, who has missed only nine of a possible 114 Premier League matches for Chelsea, could be re-deployed as a defensive midfielder under Lampard after featuring in a box-to-box role for Sarri last season.
