Liverpool Alert: 'Amazing' midfielder available for £20m. 77% of LFC fans want transfer done (Local poll)

Last month, Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri admitted that 'Amazing' midfielder N'Golo Kante 'could leave' the club this summer, and with Liverpool seemingly in the market for a dedicated defensive midfielder, it appears that Kante can leave Leicester for a fairly hefty fee.

When asked in March about Kante's future , Ranieri told The Guardian:

"There is a chance he [Kante] could leave...if big teams give us a lot of money. If he's not happy here and wants to go. I want my players to be happy."

Kante - who, according to Rio Ferdinand is 'the best tackler/retriever of the ball on the planet' - seems open to a move:

"Next season, we never know and we will see. I don't mind about the [transfer speculation from] other clubs"

How much will Kante cost? According to the Daily Mail this week:

"Kante is understood to have a clause in his contract which enables him to leave Leicester for any club willing to pay £20m".

Is Kante - described by Jamie Carragher over the weekend as a 'monster in midfield' - a player Liverpool should pursue? Reds fans certainly think so, and the results of a recent site poll on the suggest that the France midfielder has a lot of fans amongst the LFC fanbase:

Kante seems tailor-made for Jurgen Klopp's style of football, but if Leicester win the league, and Liverpool fail to qualify for the Champions League, it's hard to see why would want he'd want to sign for the Reds. Plus, after such a great season, there will almost certainly be a whole host of Champions League clubs lining up to sign Kante.
