Liverpool fans have been crying out for a midfielder to be signed. The Reds lost a key man in the middle over the summer and decided against signing a replacement. According to reports in Italy, Liverpool target Franck Kessie has rejected a new contract with AC Milan.
Liverpool target Franck Kessie
Over the past few months we’ve seen the Reds linked with dozens of midfielders.
However, the dynamo in the middle of the AC Milan midfield appears to be an ideal candidate.
Gazzetta Dello Sport is one of a number of outlets to report on Liverpool interest in Franck Kessie.
The Ivorian midfielder is a star man for the famous Serie A side, getting up and down the pitch and rarely missing a penalty.
In the past he’s been valued at £43m by Milan but they are unlikely to bring in anything near that figure with the dynamo’s contract expiring in 2022.
Corriere Dello Sport has previously claimed Liverpool have promised Kessie a £5m-a-year deal when his contract expires in Italy.
Kessie rejects new contract
Obviously, the Serie A giants are hoping to keep the dynamic middleman at the San Siro.
Milan have allegedly made another new contract offer to the box-to-box man.
However, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport, Franck Kessie has rejected the offer of a new contract, further plunging his future into uncertainty.
What RTK has to say
He is absolutely perfect for us.
Full of energy and as good on the front foot as he is out of possession, he would suit our midfield down to the ground.
Furthermore, at just 24-years-old he is nowhere near his peak.
To sign him on a free transfer next summer would be an excellent piece of business by the Reds.
