According to the print version of Corriere dello Sport in Italy (via Tribal Football,) Chelsea are now leading the race for Franck Kessie – delighting the Blues here in the Transfer Tavern.
The young midfielder has generated quite the reputation for himself this season thanks to his performances with Atalanta in Serie A.
The Italian side have turned the form book on its head to challenge for Europe this season and the Ivorian’s goals from his deep-lying position have been absolutely vital to that.
The report alleges that Kessie’s agent has flown in to talk with Chelsea representatives over a potential move – something that many of our resident Blues think could be the definitive moment in the race to secure his services.
It now remains to be seen what happens next ahead of January but our landlord reckons should Chelsea sign the midfielder they’ll be tying down one of the most promising players in Europe.
Would you take Kessie, Blues fans? Let us know below!
