Inter could face competition from teams in the Premier League including Tottenham Hotspur should they choose to move for AC Milan’s Franck Kessie.
This according to the player’s agent Massimo Brambati, who claimed in an interview with Italian news outlet Tuttomercatoweb Radio that the Ivorian has multiple suitors should he choose to leave the Rossoneri.
Inter have already signed Hakan Calhanoglu from their city rivals, while the Rossoneri also lost goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, with both players leaving upon the expiration of their contracts after failing to agree a renewal with the club.
Milan will hope that a similar situation does not play out with Kessie, whose contract is currently set to expire at the end of June 2022.
The Rossoneri are currently negotiating a new contract with the 24-year-old in the hopes that he will stay on as a key part of their project, but could be forced to sell him in the summer should they fail to come to an agreement with him and not wish to see him depart next summer without a fee coming in.
“Today, having a contract expiring in 2022 with an important player, one of Milan’s strongest, is a danger. Here is a basic error by the club.”
He continues, “Now [Kessie] is the one who holds the knife by the handle and can decide what is best for him rather than the club. I know that in addition to Inter there are two Premier League teams interested in him, including Tottenham.”
