Former Liverpool midfielder Jason McAteer has urged his former club to sign Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante, as he 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.”
