Franck Kessie’s contract will expire at the end of the season and it seems he will leave AC Milan on a free transfer. It’s far from ideal for the Rossoneri who, however, already have started planning for life without him.
According to today’s edition of La Repubblica, as cited by MilanLive, one of the players on Milan’s radar is Jordan Veretout. Since the arrival of Sergio Oliveira in January, the Frenchman has lost his starting spot for Roma.
The Rossoneri have been following the 28-year-old for quite some time and could turn to him to replace Kessie, per the newspaper. Before they signed Ismael Bennacer in 2019, they made a concrete attempt to sign Veretout from Fiorentina.
Milan will also be able to rely on the returns of Yacine Adli and Tommaso Pobega from their respective loan spell. Adli will most likely play more as a No.10, but Pobega will certainly be an option for the tandem. It remains to be seen what decision Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will make, therefore.
