Former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock has urged Reds boss Jurgen Klopp to sign Leicester City and France star N'Golo Kante this summer.

The 25-year-old is enhancing his reputation significantly after helping host nation France to two victories at Euro 2016 this summer.

His all-action forays for the national team come after the defensive midfielder played a starring role as Leicester won a fairytale Premier League title last season.

Kante has been heavily linked with a big-money move to Chelsea this summer (Daily Star), but Warnock, who spent five years at Anfield, would love to see him join Liverpool.

Kante, who joined the Foxes from Caen last summer, is definitely a class act and there is room for him at Liverpool, with Lucas Leiva his only real competition in defensive midfield, but Emre Can has shown very promising signs that he likes that role a lot.

Whatever happens, it seems likely that he will leave the King Power Stadium, albeit with a heavy heart most probably, but the diminutive midfielder has perhaps grown too big to keep at City.
