A number of Liverpool supporters are excited after the Reds were linked with a future move for AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.
It ended up being a disappointing summer transfer window from a Liverpool perspective, even though Jurgen Klopp still has a strong squad at his disposal. Ibrahima Konate proved to be the only new signing, with the centre-back coming in from Bundesliga giants RB Leipzig.
The exit of Gini Wijnaldum to Paris Saint-Germain arguably heightened the need for a new midfielder to come in, but Klopp has seemingly decided to trust his current options. However, there might be some movement on that front in 2022.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport [via Anfield Edition on Twitter], Liverpool are eyeing up a move for Milan star Kessie next summer, at which point the 24-year-old will be a free agent, having just turned down a fresh contract offer at the San Siro.
The Ivorian has earned comparisons with compatriot and Premier League winner Yaya Toure from former Milan striker Antonio Cassano, who chimed: “I want Kessie in my team, he scores, he assists, he has personality, he has quality, he doesn’t lose the ball, he is intelligent. I’m watching him carefully, with Roma it was devastating.”
Liverpool fans excited by Kessie rumour
These Reds fans took to Twitter to show their excitement at the rumour, claiming that Kessie would be a great addition.
“Amazing player! He’ll be sensational at Anfield! Him and Bellingham would be fire!“
“Do you know how badly this is needed on a free“
“I’d happily take him, been a fan for years“
“On a free would be pretty good tbh“
“This is a deal I can agree with“
