Spurs & Aston Villa Join Inter Milan In The Race For Barcelona Midfielder Franck Kessie, Spanish Media Report
Inter have been joined in the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Franck Kessie by the likes of Premier League duo Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa.
This according to Spanish news outlet Diario Sport, via FCInterNews, who also report that the Ivorian former AC Milan and Atalanta midfielder could well stay at the Camp Nou given that he is slowly beginning to receive greater playing time.
Kessie is on Inter’s radar, with the 26-year-old having already been linked with a possible swap deal for Marcelo Brozovic in January, and also having been a target at numerous points during the past.
According to Sport, there is still a chance that with the increase in playing time that Kessie has received at Barcelona following an injury to Pedri, he could stay at the club.
However, the outlet reports that Inter remain very keen, whilst Tottenham are also targeting the Ivorian given the request of coach Antonio Conte to reinforce the midfield, and Villa are also tracking the player.
