In this season, Ndombele already made 33 appearances, scored 2 goals and made 5 assists in all competition. This is an amazing result and he can do much more with high-class partners.

The 22-year-old footballer is contracted with the French club until 2020 and his release clause is nearly £45m. He is a regular member of the national team which is already a big success for the player. Chelsea ready to pay big money for the midfielder during this summer as Cesc Fabregas moved to Monaco, Danny Drinkwater and Rube Loftus-Cheek also planning to change the working place and their replacement is necessary.
