- N'golo Kante, Chelsea star, has emerged a priority transfer target for Manchester United
- The Frenchman has played a more offensive role since the arrival of Maurizio Sarri last summer
- Ex-Liverpool midfielder believes the Red Devils should capitalise on that and lure the two time Premier League winner to Old Trafford
Former Liverpool star Danny Murphy has urged Manchester United to sign Chelsea midfielder N'golo Kante this summer.
The Frenchman joined the Blues in the summer of 2016 in a five year deal around £32 million having helped Leicester City win the Premier League title that season.
And his first season at the Stamford Bridge was impressive - helping them to clinch the EPL at the end of the campaign.
However, the 42-year-old believes signing the £80 million rated midfielder could help United strengthen their squad for competition next campaign.
According to SunSport, Kante would be open to leaving his present club having being played out of position by his manager Maurizio Sarri.
He told the Daily Mail: “I'm not convinced N'Golo Kante can be happy playing out of position at Chelsea, even though he doesn't seem a lad who kicks up a fuss.
"Do what you can to see if Chelsea would be tempted by an £80m fee. Try to find out if Kante would like to play in front of 76,000 fans every week as the undisputed No 1 holding midfielder.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is planning to overhaul his squad at the end of this season and Murphy believes Kante is one of the players who fits the bill of the club's new recruits.
The Norwegian was appointed on a permanent basis this year, three months after replacing Jose Mourinho on interim basis last December.
Legit.ng earlier reported that France international N'golo Kante signed a new long term deal with Chelsea until 2026.
He joined them on a five year deal from Leicester City in 2016 and has scored four goals and four assists in 36 appearances this campaign.
The deal pushed the World Cup winning star as the highest paid Blues star with a staggering allowance of £290,000 pounds.
