N’Golo Kante is hailed as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, and former Liverpool midfielder Jason McAteer has urged his former club to sign the Chelsea midfielder.
McAteer spent four years as a Liverpool player and he revealed that Kante would provide the missing piece of “Jurgen Klopp’s jigsaw”.
“The role of the holding midfielder has developed in modern times and Liverpool boast one of the best in the business in Fabinho,” he told the Racing Post.
“He took time to settle at Anfield but was taken out of the team and given time on the training ground, and has now slotted back in seamlessly.
“He just gets it, gives it and doesn’t do anything flamboyant, though it took him a while to learn the role.
“And that’s exactly what he’s doing. His awareness of danger is fantastic.
“He and N’Golo Kante at Chelsea are the two best players in the Premier League playing that role.
“Kante is definitely one of the final pieces in Jurgen Klopp’s jigsaw.”
Liverpool fans have reacted by saying that they don’t need Kante as they are okay with Fabinho and Naby Keita.
