Can Ranieri turn £30m Anguissa into a Kante-like midfielder?

Fulham have recently decided to part ways with Slavisa Jokanovic and replace him with Claudio Ranieri.

The Cottagers lie at the bottom of the Premier League table, three points adrift of safety.

Jokanovic was sacked after only managing one win in 12 top flight games.

His replacement, Ranieri, has won the Premier League as recently as 2015/16. And while no one is expecting him to repeat that feat, he is being tasked with keeping Fulham alive in the top flight.

Fulham have a handful of good players but some need improving, such as Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.

The 22-year-old joined Fulham from Marseille in the summer for a club record £30m transfer fee.


But so far, he has been slow to adapt to life in England and he has not justified his price tag just yet.

However, Ranieri could be the perfect man to drill some discipline into the Cameroon international and get him playing to his full potential.

In fact, Ranieri will be identifying Anguissa as his man to play the role that Ngolo Kante played under him when Leicester City won the Premier League.

If Anguissa can perfect the holding midfielder role in a similar fashion to Kante, then that would allow Fulham’s other midfielders to thrive.

With added protection, Jean-Michael Seri and Tom Cairney can operate further forward, pulling the strings and making things happen.

Ranieri could be the man to squeeze the best out of Anguissa and perhaps Fulham fans might start to see some value for money.
