Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are excited to hear that they’ve joined the hunt for a big signing, ad they rival a number of Premier League clubs for a midfielder’s signature.
The Daily Star says Jurgen Klopp is expressing an interest in Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante and the Reds are prepared to rival Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham in the market for the player’s services.
Kante enjoyed a fine season last term as Leicester stormed to the Premier League title but the Foxes are resigned to losing the 25-year-old midfielder, who starred for France in their opening Euro 2016 victory over Romania.
Following a bargain buy last summer, Kante is available for £22m this close-season and a host of big names are ready to activate that release clause, although Liverpool may find it difficult as they cannot offer Champions League football.
Our landlord reckons it’s a straight shoot-out between Arsenal and Spurs for the player’s services, as other interested parties can’t offer him action in Europe’s elite competition.
Where will Kante be playing next season? Let us know in the comments below!
