- N'Golo Kante is learning how to speak Spanish, according to Marcus Alonso
- The wing-back is worried the Frenchman is eyeing a move to Spain
- Kante is an injury scare for Chelsea ahead of this weekend's EPL fixture
N'Golo Kante has been learning how to speak Spanish according his Chelsea team mate Marcos Alonso.
The Blues midfield engine room who became the first man to win the English Premier League consecutively with two different teams has been largely impressive again this season.
The Frenchman also won last season's PFA and FWA player of the year award.
Kante has been a mainstay in Chelsea’s starting XI this term, with the Champions attempting to defend their title, so the fact that the France international is trying to learn Spanish may be of concern to Antonio Conte.
Ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Crystal Palace, Alonso revealed: "Between them they speak about FIFA because they like to play it a lot.
"But not me so with [Cesar] Azpilicueta I speak about Spanish teams and football mostly, and he also asks me about my girlfriend because I have a new girlfriend and he is curious.
'And with N’Golo, he is trying to speak Spanish and I am trying to speak French so we are both teachers of each other."
"I was very impressed when I heard N’Golo speaking Spanish, he used to learn it at school and he can speak it."
Kante is a major doubt for Chelsea ahead of their trip to Selhurst Park against this season's Premier League whipping boys, Crystal Palace.
He sustained the injury while on international duty with France.
