Mediaset: Spurs want Kessie immediately and offer €62m signing to convince Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have reportedly been offered a Spurs midfielder in exchange for Franck Kessie as they look to get a deal done in January, a report claims.

According to what SportMediaset (via MilanNews) are reporting this afternoon, Kessie’s future appears to be far away from Milan as he continues to snub the idea of renewing his contract with Milan. The Ivorian long been in the sights of Tottenham who would like to sign him in the current winter transfer window to beat the competition.

In the event of Kessie’s farewell in January – which will obviously be difficult given he is at the African Cup of Nations – the Rossoneri would have to sign a replacement and for this reason Spurs have proposed Tanguy Ndombele to the Rossoneri management.

Ndombele joined Spurs from Lyon in a deal worth €62m plus €10m in potential bonuses (as per Wikipedia) but they have not managed to get the best out of him, meaning he too may be enthusiastic about a new challenge.

  1. Zoro Caloro says:

    Very different players and not a really great ballwinner, buuuut he has great skill and potential and we are going to lose Kessie for nothing otherwise, take it!!

    1. Roses says:

      Perhaps they eager to wait for better offer or they want some more for Cashie.

  2. MBM says:

    Ndombele is another lazy fraud whose career is going nowhere, however, it’s better than losing Kessie for nothing.

    1. Stam says:

      We could – should – simply sell him after the swap and get Sanches, if we dont get Kamara in 2 days.

    2. tom says:

      i have been watching ndombele all season.He has fantastic ability but does not want to do the hard bit,conte does not fancy him 1 bit

  3. Gordon Bennett says:

    Have both and pair them up in midfield with Hoyjberg or Lo Celso.

  4. Stephen says:

    I hope the deal is an 6 month free loan deal.. which is what we are pretty much asking for Kessie.

  5. Sig says:

    If Milan can’t pay Kessie’s wage demands they will not be able to pay N’Dombele’s either.

  6. Arber says:

    If the Spurs want to get rid of a player who they bought for €72 million, believe me he should be trash, garbage. They just got ripped off with the deal by Lyon. He’s just lazy…HOpe Kessie remains, if not i don’t want to lose him for free!

    1. Roses says:

      Right, it will be meite-esque if they make the swap. Cashie now worths 48M, and Ndumbele worths 38M (from 62M). They need world class MF who has good defense and offense, not just speedy gonzales, they need a complete ability and intelligent MF if they want to get scudetto this year.

  7. Nelli says:

    I don’t think this is true. It just doesn’t make sense. But if it is true take it and don’t look back.

  8. Milan from aus says:

    Can we just have 62 mill instead?

  10. Shal says:

    Any player with EPL experience may become a huge boost like Tomori. However we cannot compete their salary level. So better to ask for money instead because we have so many targets in our wishlist.

  11. Martin Bernhard says:

    Ndombele earns an average wage of 10,4 mil gbp a year at tottenham which equates 12,43 mil euros so does this news really sounds like it being even a remote possibility when we are not willing to pay kessie 7-8 mil or whatever he is currently demanding ? i dont think so.
    Anyways im sure milan has hundreds of players scouted and propably him included but unless he is willing to accept a huge financial loss there is next to no chance of him joining us.
