Speculation over Franck Kessie’s future with Milan has been in the spotlight since the start of the season. The player who plays as a midfielder has entered the final six months of his contract at the San Siro. The negotiation process between the player and the club has reached a dead end for a long time.
The high salary demands are believed to be the reason why an agreement could not be reached. Currently, Kessie is participating in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast National Team. When his participation in the tournament ends, Kessie has the opportunity to change clubs.
According to a report from the Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are a club ready to sign Kessie before the January 2022 transfer window ends. The North London club is claimed not to want to face competition with several other European clubs who have an interest in Kessie.
Given that the player’s contract expires at the end of the season, his transfer value could be significantly reduced. This speculation is also supported by Spurs’ desire to release Tanguy Ndombele.
The player who was recruited by Spurs for a transfer value of 55 million pounds in 2019 was said to be in the target of PSG, who wanted to bring him on loan until the end of this season.
