N'golinho began playing soccer quite early. At eight years, he joined the JS Suresnes youth club, where he played until 2010.

Unlike his teammates, he did not get scouted by any major clubs because of his height. His short stature made top-tier scouts disregard him despite his natural talent and skill. In an interview, Pierre Ville, one of the Suresnes club officials who discovered Kante spoke of his first impression of Kante, saying,

"My first memory of him? A little guy,"

US Boulogne (2010-2012)

In an interview with LADbible, former Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger revealed his biggest regret was not signing N'Golo despite being offered a chance by one of his best friends, the Suresnes director. Instead, Ngolo joined the Boulogne reserve team in 2010, later making his official debut in 2012 during a game in the Ligue 2 season.

Leicester (2015-2016)

In 2015, Kante was signed by Leicester on a $9.4 million transfer fee. But how many seasons was Kante at Leicester? Despite Leicester's efforts to keep him, fans were very disappointed when he only played at the club for a season before leaving for Chelsea.
