Santi Aouna reports this afternoon that Paris Saint-Germain are pushing to try and sign Milan’s Franck Kessié, with the Ivorian out of contract with the Rossoneri this summer.
The Serie A side are yet to find an agreement over a contract extension with the Ivorian, who has been at the club for four years after arriving from Atalanta.
The 24-year-old is looking to increase his salary from €2.2m/year net to €9m/year, while the Italians are ready to offer him €6m after tax.
With the chances of an agreement looking slender, Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites in the race to sign the midfielder. The Ligue 1 side are said to be in a good position to find a pre-contract agreement with Kessié’s agent, although they also face competition for his signing. The Ivorian is also reportedly looking to sell his home in Milan.
