Chelsea target coming to London

English Premier League giants Chelsea target Franck Kessie is reported to be heading to London but not the West as he is already being wanted by North London outfit Tottenham.

The West London side were initially the only side interested in the Italian Serie A outfit player with claims that they could seal the deal in coming days but that might no longer happen with Tottenham already showing keen interest.

The Ivory Coast midfielder who is currently having his second season at the San Siro might not have a longer stay should Tottenham or Chelsea eventually seal a move for him.

Franck Kessie has scored a total of eight goals with the 71 games under his belt since joining the club two seasons back.

However, the Italian Serie A side are keen to avoid issues as regarding the FFP regulations which is why they are willing to let the star player leave the club at the end of the season.

This, therefore, means that both London sides might find it difficult to land the star player in this winter transfer window unless they have a luring bid being submitted for the 22-year-old.

However, the Blues have got a relationship with Milan knowing that Bakayoko is currently with them and that could help.

Kalidou Koulibaly

Premier League champions Manchester City have no interest in signing Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly during this transfer window despite the numerous transfer links involving him and the club.

This is according to the report from the Manchester Evening News (MEN) which revealed that Kalidou Koulibaly does not even figure in the list of centre back transfer targets for the Premier League champions.

Manchester City are already closing in on a world-record transfer for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire this summer.

The Citizens will pay £80m for the England international centre back in addition to weekly wages of £280,000 thus making him one of the highest earners in the Premier League.

His £80m transfer fee would eclipse the world-record fee of £75m paid for Liverpool Virgil Van Dijk when he moved from fellow Premier League club Southampton at the start of last year.

The £75m transfer fee for Virgil Van Dijk has been money well spent for the Reds after the Dutch international skipper helped to transform the Liverpool defence.

Apart from Manchester United and Chelsea, Italian champions Juventus have also been linked with a move for Kalidou Koulibaly this summer with a transfer fee of £107m slapped on him.
