Tottenham Threatening to Upset Juventus Apple Cart

Juventus and Barcelona have an agreement in principle for Franck Kessié, but the player is in no rush to depart and will listen to other proposals too, and Tottenham are ready to barge into the race. Things could move swiftly if the Spurs put forth a concrete offer, Corriere dello Sport informs.

The ex-Milan ace isn’t so sure about fleeing Barcelona in the first place. Secondly, if he did, he’d like to try a stint in the Premier League since he already spent several years in Serie A.

The fact that Tottenham don’t play in the cups, which might be the case for Juventus too, doesn’t appear to be a problem for Kessié. According to the publication, he has given his priority to the Spurs rather than the Bianconeri.

Barcelona have set a €10/15M valuation for the Ivorian international. The London outfit could table a bid to sign him outright, while the Old Lady prefers a loan with a conditioned obligation to buy.

Our Take on Juventus, Tottenham, and Kessié

It was a bit odd that the negotiation went on without a firm okay from the player. Still, Bianconeri are in a holding pattern also because they need to sell multiple midfielders first. Things probably weren’t as advanced as initially reported. Transferring to England would make more sense if he wanted a new experience. He’d do a solid to his former fans too.
