Kessie and Liverpool connection

Kessie arrived in AC Milan at 20 years of age in 2017. However, the case was, the Ivorian International was described as a star/prodigy by Gasperini. Kessie nevertheless became one of the brightest stars in the youth team of Atalanta. Even back then, Kessie was a hot prospect in Europe with Man City, Liverpool, and Arsenal in the race.

However, the Ivorians ended up in San Siro. The story for this transfer window could be different. With the player’s contract set to expire, he may be set on his way out of Italy. Giants like Barca, Liverpool, and Tottenham have all thrown their hats in the ring for the signature of Kessie.

Kessie doesn’t hesitate in indulging in strong challenges. He is also very calm on the ball as is demonstrated by his stats. The 25-year-old is Milan’s second top scorer this season. A stat that is far impressive for a player of his position. With a passing success rate of 89%, anyone can hardly argue that the player hasn’t got what it takes to succeed in the game.

The player’s entourage recently confirmed that Barcelona has been in contact with them since December. There is a curious case for Liverpool and Spurs though. Liverpool is heavily stacked up in their midfield and would hardly need any reinforcements. But Tottenham however requires a player of his abilities.

With the summer transfer window approaching, the race for Kessie becomes more and more interesting.
