Murphy believes Kante will be right up in there with team-mate Eden Hazard.
However, Danny says he has identified one area Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is better at.
Murphy told the BBC: “The two Chelsea players [Kante and Hazard] I’ve picked are a long way ahead of everyone else.
“Kante’s inclusion does not need any explanation, really. He has got a bigger contract and is playing for a bigger team, but it has not affected his mentality.
“Without the ball he is just as hungry to cover his team-mates. His positional sense is brilliant and he rarely makes the wrong decision.
“People talk about his game improving from last season at Leicester, but it is not about that for me, it is about how he has adjusted to play with better players.
“And the more I watch him with the ball, because Chelsea are dominating games, you can see he is actually really comfortable in possession too.
“He is never going to open you up with his passing like, say, Michael Carrick can, but it does not matter because Chelsea have got other players who can do that.”
