So I am not too sure where to start from. Luckily enough I decided to try out Kante as a CDM and he definitely turned out to be the best CDM I have tried so far though I haven't tried any above 1m price tag. He is so fast and agile and is definitely the best interceptor in the game. He can intercept passes all game long without a problem and the highlight for me is definitely his 97 STAMINA. You can definitely feel the difference between his stamina and every other player's stamina. It makes a huge difference in matches that go to extra time and then you have a huge advantage if you have him in your team. On the 80th minute of a match he is usually between 70-80 % stamina which is absolutely brilliant for me.
He is so fast and agile and he can charge up to opponent's player so fast and his standing tackles are also very clean. I rarely get any cards or fouls with him due to his outstanding ability to stand tackle very well. He does that even from behind without fouling the opponents attackers. His passing is also a highlight for me as he gets quite some assists for me too. Not the best at long passes but short ones are on point. I do play him with anchor due to the extra strength needed.
He fits the META perfectly and his only problem as a CDM are most probably aerial duels. He is pretty bad at them and can win almost none of them.
I definitely recommend him if you are looking for somebody to counter the META strikers at this stage of the game.

I used to have Sissoko at CDM paired with 86 Lampard in a 4222 squad...which is decent as he always wins headers and intercepts. But I spent big and tried Kante and wow I am amazed. He feels like Kante IRL...intercepting balls and getting the ball b4 opponents get through the midfield. With anchor, he has 93 pace and 95 def. (LIKE WTF!), it's so powerful that they can't even go into the final third and take a shot. Sissoko is a 70/100 but Kante is a 99. You can charge up and take the ball if you are confident. 9 out of 10 times he wins it. Also he's fine at finishing inside the box
