Tottenham has entered the pursuit for Milan star Franck Kessie, the football transfer speculations in the British and Italian media.
In today’s football world, the transfer window is open all year. While actual player moves occur throughout the summer and winter transfer windows, rumors, conjecture, and even actual deals may occur at any time.
In the summer of 2019, AC Milan paid Atalanta 24 million euros for the Ivory Coast international. The 25-year-contract old’s is up in June 2022.
Several European teams have expressed interest in the 25-year-old.
The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in the Ivory Coast. His record for Ivory Coast is impressive. Kessie has scored five goals in 52 matches for Ivory Coast at senior level.
On all fronts, the midfielder has scored three goals and supplied one assist in 20 games this season.
He is enjoying an excellent season so far.
The midfielder’s contract at Milan is about to expire and a number of clubs are said to be monitoring his situation, with Tottenham showing the most concrete interest in an attempt to lure the player to their team.
Antonio Conte is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him to London. “Tottenham are interested in AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie. Kessie is out of contract at AC Milan at the end of the season and La Gazzetta dello Sport says Tottenham are among the clubs monitoring his situation. Kessie said in September that he wanted to remain at Milan but the Italian club have faced a different reality during negotiations with his agent George Atangana. Kessie’s agent has demanded an €9m-a-year salary. It remains to be seen if Spurs would be willing to meet those demands, especially given his performance levels have dropped off this season. PSG have also been linked with a move for Kessie.”
