Report: Conte appointment would make Spurs serious suitors for Milan star after €40m bid

By Oliver Fisher -

If Antonio Conte joins Spurs as their new head coach then they are expected to go back in for Franck Kessie, a journalist has claimed.

There are now widespread reports suggesting that Conte is Tottenham bound after they sacked Nuno Espirito Santo this morning, and it is natural that he would want to put his mark on the squad by bringing in some new signings that fit his system and style.

Nicolo Schira reports on Twitter that Spurs are back in the frame as a potential suitor for Kessie providing Conte does end up as their new boss. The Ivorian’s contract expires at the end of the season and there is nothing to suggest that a renewal is imminent.

Back in August their director Fabio Paratici met the agent of the midfielder – George Atangana – putting on the table a five-year deal worth €8m net per season, therefore a total of €40m. Meanwhile, Schira adds that Conte already wanted Kessie at Inter two years ago.

  1. Good for Maldini and Massara,
    Time to cash out and gain some capital returns after Hakan and $ruma zero fee and zero trophy 🏆 returns!

    1. Ya there is no cash out for us unfortunately. We screwed up yet again not securing Kessie earlier or selling him on summer when we could have actually “cashed out”. Now we will be left with nothing like Hakan and Donnaruma (and probably Romagnoli as well)….Pls Milan sign Kamara in January to make up for this loss
