Franck Kessie stock is rising, as the Ivory Coast and AC Milan midfielder has showcased his talents in Serie A and according to reports is being sought after by three of the biggest clubs in the world. Kessie who began his career in Atalanta in 2015 moved to AC Milan in 2019 and has done nothing more than impress.
At Milan, Kessie has played 143 matches and scored 29 goals up until the end of the 2020/21 season. Kessie’s electric play with the Rossoneri was supposed to lead to a new contract but those talks have stalled according to 90min. Kessie is said to want €7m-€8m in wages annually, it is something AC Milan may not be able to afford.
Enter two Premier League clubs and the team of the moment and Kessie is now a hot commodity, here are the three giants that want AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.
PSG wants everyone, where does he fit at PSG? Franck Kessie may not even care as who can pass up playing alongside Neymar and Messi? Kessie would be a great utility midfielder at PSG and is a viable scoring threat.
Chelsea is stacked in midfield and while Kessie is a very good talent it does not look reasonable to see him go to Chelsea where he would have significant competition and limited playing time.
Liverpool and Franck Kessie fit like a glove, it is said Liverpool is willing to do a player swap for Thiago Alcántara to get Kessie before his contract is up and that may push the deal to the finish line as AC Milan may not want to lose Kessie on a free transfer.
