Tottenham Prepare to Close In on Milan Midfielder Kessié

Antonio Conte seems to be wasting no time within the winter transfer window as Tottenham prepare to make a hefty offer for the Milan midfielder Franck Yannick Kessié. With the 25 year-old Ivorian’s contract expiring in June, Kessié is currently allowed to negotiate with other clubs overseas in order to seek a new opportunity. As a result, according to Daily Mail, the Premier League giants plan to react as quickly as possible in order to tempt the defensive midfielder in playing at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next season.

Ever since Conte’s appointment as manager of Tottenham Hotspur, the Italian tactician has expressed his desire to bring in the  Croatian midfielder from Inter, Marcelo Brozovic. However, according to Sempre Inter, Brozovic and the club seem to have narrowed the gap between themselves as Inter are extremely close in extending the defensive midfielder’s stay at the San Siro. Therefore, the club has shifted into third gear as they’re determined on bringing in the Rossoneri superstar to North London next year as an alternative choice.

Despite Kessie’s lucrative demands of a proposed salary at 6.5 million euros per-season, Daniel Levy is prepared to splurge the necessary finances in order to persuade the Serie A star in joining Tottenham on a pre-contract agreement for the 2022-23 campaign.

Unfortunately Tottenham, they are not the only ones showing interest in signing the Ivorian midfielder as fellow Premier League teams Manchester United and Arsenal are also in the race for the acquisition of Kessié in order to strengthen their midfield. However, Conte is enthusiastic on fighting for the Milan superstar as Kessié would be a perfect fit for his roster. Within Conte’s 3-5-2 formation, the defensive midfielder would gel seamlessly as he possesses an extraordinary ability to take the ball off the opposition in key areas of the pitch, as well as his immaculate long-rage passing skills that spread the play in a brilliant fashion.
