AC Milan are battling to try and secure the renewal of Franck Kessie but in the mean time Spurs have inserted themselves into the race, a report claims.
Kessie’s importance to Milan has been well documented as he has become a leader both on the field but also in the dressing room. However, with his contract set to expire next June, he wants a salary increase that reflects such a status and this has led to some friction.
According to the latest from La Repubblica (via MilanNews), the negotiations for the extension of the Ivorian are proceeding slowly and this appears to have alerted some other clubs, who are now sensing an opportunity to sign him.
The interest of Tottenham must be noted, and the English club are even ready to meet the demands of the 24-year-old in terms of salary, which certainly represents a risk to Milan’s chances of getting him to stay.
