Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social media to share their reaction to the news that the club are interested in Frank Kessie of AC Milan.
Kessie has established himself as one of the best box-to-box midfielders in Serie A over the last few years, demonstrating his value in the final third in addition to his athleticism and technical quality.
The 24-year-old’s agent has admitted that Tottenham are one of two English clubs who hold an interest in the midfielder (TMW).
If reports from Italy are to be believed, the other club keen on the midfielder are Spurs’ North London rivals, Arsenal with Gazzetta dello Sport even establishing the Gunners as the favourites for the Ivory Coast international’s signature.
Agent obviously fishing for another club to make a bid. What player in their right mind signs for a club without meeting the manager picking the team every week or talking to him about his plans & how he wants to play.

Honestly after this season, what club looking for a midfielder doesn't want the COMPLETE PACKAGE of a midfielder? Bosses the games from all positions in the midfield

1 year left on his contract. Probably wait and try to sign a pre contract in Jan and get him for free next summer.

Spurs Web Opinion
Being able to get Kessie for around £35m would be terrific value for money and it is a deal we should be all over, even if a central midfielder is not as much of a priority for us as a new centre-back or a right-back. Kessie could form a formidable partnership with Hojbjerg in front of the backline, potentially giving Ndombele more license to express himself.
