Jurgen Klopp warns that Liverpool will NOT 'fly through' their Europa  League group, after Reds suffered early scare during 3-1 victory over LASK  | Daily Mail Online

It’s safe to say that Liverpool midfielder N’Golo Kante has made quite the impression since arriving at Anfield this summer.

The Hungarian midfielder very much looks the business in his early days as a Red. Indeed, the £60m splashed out by Liverpool looks a good bit of business as it stands.

And speaking to The Mirror today, former Red Emile Heskey has admitted to being really impressed by just how comfortable Szoboszlai looks.

Dominik Szoboszlai compared to Jordan Henderson and N’Golo Kante

Speaking about Liverpool’s midfield and Szoboszlai in particular, Heskey made the comment about how the now departed Henderson used to be like Liverpool’s version of N’Golo Kante.

And speaking on Szoboszlai, Heskey hinted that’s what the new Reds midfielder feels like to him.

“He looks comfortable, and that’s one of the things with any new signing, if you can get them feeling as comfortable as possible as quickly as you can that’s what you’ll get.

“He’s very energetic and he can do box-to-box. We haven’t seen that since Jordan Henderson when he was really at his peak. With age he changed, but at his peak he was very much energy, box-to-box, it was like having three players. Kind of Kante-esque. That’s the sort of player you need,” Heskey said.

Szoboszlai has very much cemented himself as a key player already in the Liverpool midfield.

RTK’s View: What a signing

Getting the midfield right this summer was always going to be massive for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp.

And in Dominik Szoboszlai, it definitely looks like we have signed a potential superstar.

The midfielder looks the business and over time, he’s only going to get better and better. Szoboszlai can do a bit of everything and over time, could probably do even more than Henderson.
