PSG join Kessie chase

Paris Saint-Germain join the bidding war for Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie with Manchester United, Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool.

The 20-year-old has been a sensation in his debut Serie A season, scoring seven goals with two assists in 17 competitive appearances.

He is currently at the Africa Cup of Nations playing for the Ivory Coast, where he is already known as the new Yaya Toure.

Inter and Juventus had shown interest, but were quickly priced out of the market, and the €25m bidding war is set to escalate.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Paris Saint-Germain are preparing a summer swoop for Kessie.

The Premier League is clamouring for his services with Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool asking after him.

Atalanta have made it clear they won’t sell during the January transfer window, having already sold Roberto Gagliardini to Inter for a deal worth up to €28m.
