Tottenham Hotspur: Major Franck Kessie update emerges -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

As per Milan News, it appears a major Tottenham Hotspur transfer update has emerged in the race to sign AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.

The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing Kessie…

Tottenham have been linked with a swoop for the potential 2022 free agent since the end last summer’s transfer window with managing director Fabio Paratici targeting a move.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Get Italian Football News) even claimed that Spurs talks with Kessie and his entourage were at a ‘very advanced’ stage at one point.

Meanwhile, Sportitalia TV reporter Rudy Galetti claimed that Tottenham even had a close agreement, so while these claims have failed to come to fruition so far, there is certainly plenty of noise about this one ahead of the 2022 January transfer window.

The Latest: Tottenham ‘ready’ to meet Kessie demands…

In an update, Milan Live now say that both Tottenham and Paris-Saint Germain are both ‘ready’ to ‘welcome’ and ‘satisfy’ Kessie’s wage demands – said to be around €10 million-per-season (£8.5m).

It also believed that Kessie’s exit from the San Siro is ‘increasingly likely’ with Milan potentially having to search for replacements already.

The Verdict: Get it done…

The Ivory Coast star would undoubtedly bolster Conte’s options in midfield and provide a real degree of quality, as evident by his impressive 13 goals and four assists in 36 Serie A starts last season.

Despite being a natural defensive midfielder, Kessie has flourished in a more advanced role under Stefano Pioli with Milan’s boss even calling him ‘sumptuous’.

Valued at around £49.5 million by Transfermarkt, Spurs and Paratici could bypass that or any fee by signing him on a pre-contract in January – a move which is surely a no-brainer.
