Napoli and Inter Milan are among clubs showing interest in latest Serie A sensation Franck Kessie, according to Tuttosport.
The 19-year-old has been the real revelation of the new league campaign in Italy as he scored no fewer than four goals in three fixtures.
After returning from a loan spell at Cesena, Kessie slotted straight into the starting line-up in Bergamo and has been in excellent form so far.
The talented footballer had begun his career as a centre-back, but he has been operating as a central midfielder of late, and he has already proved he has a knack for goal.
Napoli and Inter Milan are hot on his trail and could try to make their interest concrete in the January transfer window, while Juventus are also expected to join the chase.
Sunderland came close to signing Kessie in the summer transfer window after agreeing a deal with Atalanta, but the player could not obtain a work permit and in turn remained in Bergamo.
