Sport Italia journalist Rudy Galetti has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are leading the race to sign AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie on a free transfer in the summer.
Gazzetta dello Sport claimed this week that Kessie is yet to receive a January offer from any other club and the midfielder could put pen to paper on a new contract at the San Siro.
However, Galetti has now poured cold water over that speculation, insisting that Milan’s contract offer is still a long way off what Kessie is demanding.
The journalist alleged that Spurs have offered the Milan star a €10m per year (£8.3m) deal including bonuses.
Despite interest from Paris Saint-Germain and another unnamed Premier League club in Kessie, Galtetti adds that Tottenham are the favourites to snap up the player.

I believe Kessie will be a very good fit for Conte’s system and will thrive in the Premier League. However, there could well be a lot of twists and turns in this saga before the summer transfer window. I would expect more clubs to enter the race should the 25-yea-old be available on a free transfer.
