Chelsea have been linked with a move for Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie. The midfielder has recently been linked with Roma and AC Milan but Atalanta chief Giovanni Sartori admits Chelsea are favourites.
“At Roma they love him and the offer could be sufficient in view of the fact that we are not far from an agreement,” Sartori told itasportpress via Tribal Football.
“There is nothing concrete yet, as the player has to make his assessments with the capital club and his agent is taking care of things from an economic perspective.
“He’s also wanted by Milan but the Rossoneri have not yet presented a real deal.
“The player wants to wait until the end of the season to make a decision, partly because he is attracted to the Premier League, as Chelsea really like him.”
