Liverpool '€22m Kessie bid'

Liverpool are reportedly preparing a summer bid for 19-year-old Atalanta star Franck Kessie.

According to Corriere dello Sport, representatives from the Premier League club watched the Ivorian during Atalanta’s 2-1 victory over Roma in November, a game in which the youngster played 90 minutes and scored.

This has prompted the Reds to prepare a €22m offer for the midfielder, alongside a basic contract worth a reported €2.5m per season.

Juventus are also interested in Kessie, but Atalanta have made it clear that they want to hang on to their star youngster until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old has made headlines this term, scoring five goals and providing one assist in 13 Serie A matches, helping his side mount a surprise charge to sixth in the standings.
