Kante is being linked with PSG this summer, where sports director Antero Henrique has met with the midfielder's agent last week.
Cavani told Telefoot: "The best player of the French team and I really like him is the midfielder of Chelsea, N'Golo Kanté.
"He is strong. He has a very simple profile. He is able to raise his level of play at any time.
"I really like players who play like that."
