Tottenham have already made plans for 2022, as Fabio Paratici is preparing to accept a £6.8 million contract offer.
During the summer transfer window, Tottenham was one of the most active Premier League clubs.
After a productive first summer in charge, Tottenham transfer chief Fabio Paratici is clearly not prepared to rest on his laurels. According to reports, the north London club is preparing a lucrative contract offer for AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie in order to entice him to England’s capital next season, despite the fact that elite clubs throughout Europe are expected to make similar offers.
The Ivory Coast international’s contract at the San Siro expires next summer, which means he’ll be free to sign a pre-contract agreement in January before a summer transfer.
As one of Milan’s top midfielders, they’ll have to find a way to persuade him to extend his contract in the weeks before the window reopens.
With Inter Milan weakened following last season’s domestic triumph, Serie A success would undoubtedly be one means of shifting the pendulum back in their favor.
The Rossoneri had some strong spells last season and are off to a tremendous start this season, which is fortunate because Kessie’s future in Italy may be on the line.
According to Calciomercato, if the 24-year-heart old’s still lays elsewhere, Spurs are reportedly willing to pay £130,000 per week to land him.
Spurs have no choice but to aim high with their contract offer, with Chelsea, backed by Roman Abramovich, also in the running.
In many respects, Kessie would be the ideal substitute for Tanguy Ndombele, the pricey Tottenham signing who has been left out of Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad.
Kessie, who is still only in his early twenties, has 48 caps for the Ivory Coast and nearly 200 matches for AC Milan.
The former Atalanta youth has grown into a prolific goalscoring midfielder as he has matured.
He scored 13 Serie A goals last season, which was one more than Juventus striker Alvaro Morata.
It’s rare to find such a valuable combination of youth and experience in one athlete, let alone for free.
Spurs would be sending a clear statement of purpose by doing so, as they appear to be planning for the next transfer window after a busy summer.
Nuno and Paratici signed five significant players this season, including Harry Kane, who had been linked with a move away from Tottenham. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
