AC Milan are prepared to let Franck Kessie leave in January as long as their valuation is met, according to the latest reports.
Thursday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews.it) takes stock of Milan’s current mercato situation, acknowledging that in addition to signings – the dream being Zlatan Ibrahimovic – there could also be some key exits.
One of the players whose future is under scrutiny is Kessie. The Ivorian has now lost his permanent position in the starting XI with Rade Krunic now giving him a good fight for the spot.
There are a number of teams taking note of Kessie’s situation, the report adds, with West Ham and Wolverhampton from the Premier League as well as Fiorentina and Napoli domestically.
Milan values the 22-year-old at €30million, a figure that would allow the club to put a good capital gain on the balance sheet.
With a wealth of midfield options including Krunic, Lucas Paqueta and Giacomo Bonaventura, Milan could postpone the purchase of a new midfielder until next summer if Kessie leaves.
