The summer transfer window provides clubs all over the world an avenue to bolster their squads in a bid to address weaknesses and improve team functionality.

Even in the most powerful of squads, there is always room to accommodate new players that can make the team marginally better than they previously were.

This article looks at some of the players who will make the most difference at their new clubs.

1Ngolo Kante (Chelsea)

Chelsea’s midfield as the rest of the team, looked utterly shambolic last season, as they struggled to stamp their authority on games.

Nemanja Matic, whose screening presence provided the platform for Cesc Fabregas to do his magic, looked leggy and out of his depth, allowing opponents a free run at his defenders.

The new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has taken steps to address that with the signing of the best holding midfielder in the League last season, Frenchman Ngolo Kante, who led the League in tackles and interceptions.

The Kante-Cesc midfield will enable the defensively suspect Fabregas to go about his playmaking duties, knowing that Kante is more than capable of sweeping and doing the grunt work behind him.
