Steve Nicol has urged Manchester City to sign N’Golo Kante in the summer when the midfielder’s Chelsea contract expires.

Nicol told ESPN: “If I am a coach of the best team on the planet, and he’s [Kante] available, then I want to sign him. 

“There are certain things that you take a chance on in football, and this is one of them. You know exactly what you are getting when he is fit. You know you are getting a player, a gentleman, and an experienced winner.”

“He’s the whole package. The nicest guy in the world. Fantastic in the dressing room. You are getting everything. The question is, the fitness side of it, but it’s worth a gamble.

“If I am Madrid, Man City, Liverpool, Barcelona, Bayern, or any of the so-called big guys. If this guy is on a free, then I am signing him.”
