Liverpool's reported interest in Franck Kessie underlined by classy assist

Franck Kessie produced a moment to remember in the dying minutes against Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid to earn AC Milan a win in the ‘Group of Death.’

Atleti are playing awfully in Europe this season and are now stranded at the bottom of Group B, with one win from five in the Champions League this season.

Liverpool had nothing to play for against Porto and it will be the same against Milan when the Reds travel to Italy in December. But they will want to keep an eye on reported transfer target Kessie.

A month ago, Gazzetta Dello Sport reported that Liverpool were at the front of the queue to sign Kessie, who will be a free agent in the summer as his AC Milan contract winds down.

After letting Georginio Wijnaldum go for free, it would be wise to replace him with Kessie, as getting him will not cost anything aside from the reported signing bonus the Reds have promised.

FSG are supposedly willing to pay Kessie a €30million (£25.4m) signing-on bonus to ensure he doesn’t sign a new deal and instead moves to Anfield to play under Jurgen Klopp.

If that is the case, his display against Atletico Madrid is evidence as to why they are so keen to have him move to Merseyside, as he helped Milan steal a late win away to Atletico Madrid.

In the 86th minute, Kessie wandered forward and, once the ball was pinged into his feet, he took one touch and put an outrageous cross into the box which Junior Messias wasted no time in heading beyond the helpless Jan Oblak.

Liverpool haven’t got those forward runs from midfielders at the moment and could be even more terrifying in attack if they had someone like Kessie flying forward to assist the front three.
