AC Milan and Monaco have agreed a fee over the transfer of midfielder Franck Kessie, according to the latest reports.
French outlet RMC Sport (via GFFN) followed that up on Tuesday by stating that Kessie remains at the top of the Ligue 1 club’s wishlist.
According to Wednesday’s edition of La Repubblica (via Calciomertcato.com), Milan and Monaco have agreed a fee for Kessie believed to be €25m plus bonuses.
However, the problem is now to convince the player, and at the moment his salary demands are slowing things down.
The newspaper adds that the Ivory Coast international is asking for €6m-a-year to join Monaco, a figure which at the moment they are not willing to meet.
Another complication comes from the fact that Milan would have little time to source a replacement.
