Premier League leaders Chelsea have submitted a €25m offer for Serie A side Atalanta’s midfielder Franck Kessié, according to our colleagues at France Football.
Antoino Conte wants to add the 20 year old box-to-box man to his squad next month, with the Blues making a big offer early.
However, according to the report, Juventus are also seriously interested in Kessié, who has been a complete revelation in the first half of the 2016/17 campaign.
José Mourinho, the Manchester United manager, was also on the phone with the player last month, the report indicates.
We await to see what response Atalanta give to Chelsea’s offer for the Ivorian.
More undoubtedly to follow in the coming days.
