AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie has ended up on the wish list of Newcastle United as they get ready to spend big, according to a report.
Kessie’s situation has been well documented recently as the Ivorian has a contract which expires at the end of the season and there is seemingly nothing to suggest that an agreement over a renewal is imminent or even that steps are being taken in the right direction.
Now, this morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) writes that Kessie has a new suitor in Newcastle United. The 24-year-old has ended on the shopping list of the new Saudi Arabian ownership, who seem to have made €250m available to spend in the next market sessions.
The former Atalanta midfielder’s contract is about to expire as aforementioned, and if an auction were to be started on his salary, Milan would have little chance of winning such a bidding war.
