Plenty of Everton fans have been lauding Franck Kessie after Tuttosport reported that Carlo Ancelotti is targeting the AC Milan ace to reinforce his midfield.
Would Kessie be a good signing?
As per the outlet, Napoli, Juventus and Newcastle are also chasing the signature of the central midfield player in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Comparing Kessie’s stats to the likes of Fabian Delph, Tom Davies and Andre Gomes in their respective domestic leagues so far in the 2019/20 season, the 23-year old averages more tackles, shots and key passes at a higher success rate then the Merseyside club’s other midfielders, according to Whoscored.
The £18m-valued man also has a wealth of experience under his belt at a high level, with 197 games played in Italy with the likes of AC Milan as well as a relatively impressive 39 caps for the senior Ivorian national team (via Transfermarkt).
These EFC supporters lauded the transfer link on Twitter:
