Tottenham Hotspur have been linked to Franck Kessie for a while now, with the Ivorian out of contract in the summer, and he is now free to sign a pre-contract deal with other European clubs.
ESPN have reported that Daniel Levy has given the green light on the transfer, with a ‘lucrative’ deal being offered to the versatile midfielder.
AC Milan are currently second in Serie A, proving Kessie’s credentials to a title push.

How the Spurs fans reacted to Kessie update
“Kessie x Matar Sarr x Ndombele. Yeah we’re cooking 2022.” @DunkySantana
“Am I dreaming or is it the real world?” @hmzacr
“Somebody please hold me up!!! I think I’m about to faint!!!” @valeebbw
“Get him in!” @SpursUnionN17
“Things you love to see.” @EGadenneTHFC
As mentioned previously, he has helped AC Milan on a title push this season, sitting second in the table. Kessie has featured in every league game available, missing three through injury.
While predominately a holding midfielder, he can play further forward. He played in an attacking midfield role against Empoli, bagging a brace in a 4-2 win for his side last time out.
According to TransferMarkt, the midfielder has a market value of over £40 million, so that would be real shrewd business from Levy and Spurs, bringing him in on a free.
Looking at the stats, he’ll undoubtedly improve Antonio Conte’s options.
