Bayern Munich coach, Niko Kovac, has suggested Ngolo Kante as the kind of player the Bavarians are missing in their already star-studded midfield.
The German side has several experienced and talented players in their ranks but lacks a defensive shield in the mood of Kante.
The France midfielder has proven himself for both club and country and is now regarded as one of the best in his position.
He has played in a more advanced role for Chelsea this season under Italian manager, Maurizio Sarri, but Kovac is hopeful Bayern can find a player like the 27-year-old to improve his team.
"Today, to succeed - and I'm going to take France as an example - you need a player like N'Golo Kante, someone cleaning up wherever he goes," the Croat told RMC.
“Bayern Munich had this kind of player in the past, and today we do not have a player like him, and those who are here have to do this job, which means that defending is the task of every player.”
It's yet unknown if the Bundesliga leaders will put in a bid for the two-time Premier League winner.
The German champions are already planning for next season and beyond with two of Kante's international teammates, Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez, already signed up from Stuttgart and Atletico Madrid.
