Klopp could sign a player who might be the next Kante

Injuries surrounding

The call for urgent improvement in Liverpool’s midfield is currently visible to anyone who watches them play.

Above this, Klopp has James Milner, Chamberlain, and Naby Keita out of contract next season. Arthur will also probably return to Juventus after the loan spell is over. Liverpool needs to be very involved in the summer window if they want to maintain the quality of the team.

This surely has resulted in the rise of many transfer rumors also as Liverpool have been linked to many players in a short span of time. However, amongst these rumors, leaving Bellingham aside, Moises Caicedo seems the most interesting one. The Reds have been linked to this Brighton player for a quite long time but his market value of  £85m. can surely be an issue.

Kante 2.0 for Liverpool?

Caicedo has set his standards high in the footballing world with his performance for Ecuador in this world cup. Especially that goal against Senegal in their last World Cup match.

There are talks of him being a younger version of Ngolo Kante and Liverpool can surely get a boost with what is next Kante.

His and Kante’s playing style are almost similar as the South American journalist said.

He is a terrific athlete who makes football look easy. A box-to-box midfielder.

“A year ago he was saying that Kante of Chelsea is his role model but he is already more than that. He already offers more in the final third.”

“That kind of box-to-box midfielder that’s very much in the tradition of the England game. Strong, quick, intelligent and cool. He really does look like the genuine article.”

Ecuadorian football historian Enrico Castro-Montes also lavished the youngster with praise while speaking to Het Niuewsblad (via Sport Witness), saying:

“In his own country, he is really seen as the crown jewel of a new generation.

“Caicedo really has everything to become the best Ecuadorian footballer of all time. I think that off the ball, he is indeed somewhat reminiscent of Kante, but on the ball, he resembles Paul Pogba with his flair and his technique.”

This season, he has proved his mettle in the premier league with an average softcore rating of 7.12/10.

With those stats, he has shown the quality he has and how pivotal he can be for Klopp’s system.

His price may sound a lot but the possibility of him growing in the league and reaching his potential is something to focus on.
