Arsenal have launched a £30million bid for promising Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie, according to an array of British tabloids.
The Ivory Coast international, who has been dubbed ‘the next Yaya Toure’, and his six goals in 16 Serie A appearances this season have helped Atalanta reach the lofty heights of sixth place in the standings.
The initial report, which emanated from France Football, stated that Antonio Conte is hoping to try and beat his former club Juventus with an early bid that will surely test Atalanta’s resolve in January.
Kessie is now set to miss a large portion of domestic football with the African Cup of Nations now firmly on the horizon, but Chelsea appear to be very eager to secure his services for the long term.
