AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie is reportedly ‘overwhelmed’ by Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in him.
JuveLive state that Fabio Paratici has already ‘moved eagerly’ for the 24-year-old. The managing director of football for Spurs has strong links to the Italian market and loves to sniff out players on the cheap so this potential deal will not come as a surprise to many.
The signing may not be one that requires a big transfer fee given that the midfielder’s contract at the San Siro expires at the end of this season. Spurs are said to be willing to satisfy the needs of both AC Milan and Kessie with regards to a January move.
Tottenham’s strong interest has even reportedly taken Juventus ‘out of the game’ for Kessie’s signature as Spurs may leap ahead of the competition due to their willingness to pay a fee in January.
Kessie on a free almost seems too good to be true for Spurs. Surely, at some point, every top team in Europe will be in the race. In the meantime, everyone around N17 will be whispering it quietly until January at least.
