Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel dreams of signing Frank Kessie and he is ready to let go of Fikayo Tomori as part of the deal which looks likely to happen if AC Milan reaches an agreement with the Blues.
The 24-year-old Kessie has been with Milan since 2017 having joined on from Atalana after initially moved on a two-year loan deal before it was made permanent in the summer of 2019 and he has been a key player for the League leaders.
Thomas Tuchel will be hoping Fikayo Tomori’s loan move and impressive display might help push through a deal for the Ivory Coast player to complete a move to Stamford Bridge during the summer transfer window before start of next season.
According to reports from Il Milanista (h/t Daily Star), Chelsea manager is desperately interested in signing AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie and the club could use Fikayo Tomori as a makeweight in the deal to sign him.
The England defender who joined the Italian side during the January transfer window on loan until the end of season might already have find his way back to regular football since making that move and it looks it might be permanent.
With the new headlines making way, Chelsea might not be looking to bring the defender back and will be opting to use him as part of a deal which will see Kessie move to England as Thomas Tuchel is an admirer of the player.
With Chelsea looking for defensive reinforcements in the summer, there remain question marks over Tomori’s future at the club which using him to sign a midfield powerhouse like Kessie could be the final solution for both sides.
The Ivory Coast midfielder still have over a year in his contract with AC Milan and it looks very possible for an agreement to be reached between the two sides who will be looking to benefit from each other.
