Chelsea and Tottenham vying for Franck Kessie

The Premier League duo, Chelsea and Tottenham, are said to be hot on the trail of the AC Milan midfield star Franck Kessie.

The Ivory Coast international joined Rossoneri from Atalanta in 2017 on a two-year loan deal with an obligation to buy at the end of the current season. It is believed AC Milan are required to pay £19.5 million to secure his signature on a permanent deal.

Kessie’s future at AC Milan will very much depend on whether Rossoneri will be able to secure a place in the Champions League next season. The talented midfielder wants to play at the highest level and AC Milan would have their hands tied should they fail to grab the top-four finish.

The Italian media are suggesting that both Chelsea and Tottenham are keeping a close eye on the Ivorian. AC Milan may need to offload Kessie in order to balance the books in case of a failure to secure additional revenue with the Champions League, having previously been in hot waters with FFP rules.

In addition to Chelsea and Tottenham, French champions Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be interested in Kessie but their prime targets lie elsewhere.
