The print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport (as relayed by Sport Witness) has revealed that Tottenham could face competition from Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain for AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.

Tottenham reportedly expressed an interest in Kessie during the summer transfer window but the midfielder ended up staying put at the San Siro despite having less than twelve months left to run on his contract.

It has subsequently been suggested that Spurs could try to land the midfielder as a free agent when his contract runs out next summer.

Some sources have even claimed that the Rossoneri could cash in on Kessie for a mere £7.5m in the January transfer window to avoid losing him for free next summer.

Gazzetta’s latest report reveals there has been no advancement in talks between the Ivory Coast international’s hierarchy and Milan, with the Serie A giants continuing to ‘worry’ about losing him. 

However, it is also reported that competition for the 24-year-old’s signature could heat up, with Man Utd now joining PSG and Spurs in the race.

Spurs Web Opinion 

If Kessie is available for a cut-price deal in January or as a free agent next summer, there is bound to be plenty of competition for his signature.

Hopefully, Paratici’s contacts will prove useful for Spurs in potentially getting ahead of the competition.

However, it might prove tricky to convince Kessie to sign if we do not have Champions League football to offer.
