AC Milan have reportedly already begun talks with potential replacements for Franck Kessie amid rumours he is set to leave.
Premier League sides Spurs and Wolves were linked with a move for Kessie earlier in the summer, with the latter apparently having a bid accepted.
However, as the English window closed in appeared that the 22-year-old would be staying at Milan.
That was until a shock report on Thursday from French outlet RMC Sport claimed that the Rossoneri are in talks with Monaco over a €20m deal for Kessie.
They added that the player is ‘enthusiastic’ about the idea of moving to the Ligue 1 side, despite having only made his move to Milan permanent this summer in a deal totalling €32m.
The player has expressed doubts about adjusting to Giampaolo’s 4-3-1-2 system, so a fresh start could be on the cards.
The report goes on to add that Milan have ‘begun discussions’ with potential replacements for Kessie, something that is a sign that negotiations are at an advanced stage.
