Kante rose to fame in the Leicester team that miraculously won the Premier League in 2015/16.
Since moving to Chelsea for 32 million pounds, the defensive midfielder has taken his game to another level and has helped France reach the glory of the World Cup this summer.
Keith came to Anfield with great expectations a year after Jurgen Klopp paid RB Leipzig $ 50 million for his services.
Endnote only Grobbelaar thinks the Guinea international can usurp Kante, but sees him as the heir of Red legend Steven Gerrard.
Grobbelaar said: "Honestly, I think he's the only player who can get that number 8 shirt after Steven Gerrard, I think he's the perfect player in that position.
"I compare it to Kante, who is an important player"
"Stevie G was a brilliant player who will always be remembered as a great server and ambassador of the club and himself.
"And Keita is the only person I would have given him that shirt to try to emulate what Steven has produced."
"He's a beautiful player and I've already seen signs that he's going to have a big impact on Liverpool this season and in the years to come."
"Jurgen Klopp was very clever in seeing Keita's ability and potential to develop, he came quickly, he signed it and then he left it in Leipzig last season.
"I'm sure he's going to bloom even more and fit in the side easily. I've seen him in pre-season games and he's been absolutely brilliant.
"I compare him to Kante, who is a great player, but with Kante, what you see is what you get, he will chase you and win the ball.
"With Keita, he will chase you, take the ball, then get in the box and score or have the same type of pass as Philippe Coutinho in the last installment.
"There's no doubt that it's the complete package for me and the perfect person to wear that shirt after Stevie G."
Liverpool expensive a great team from West Ham in Anfield later today in their first Premier League game (1.30 p.m.).
