Chelsea, Man Utd join scramble for Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie

The race for Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie is heating up.

Juventus are pushing to do business with Atalanta over a €10 million deal ahead of the January market.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport says Juve face stiff competition from England, where Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are all keen.

Kessie, last week, revealed he'd be a Sunderland player this season if not for UK work permit difficulties.< p> He said, "I like the English league, now I have to learn Italian tactics and then maybe one day go to Manchester United. I do not know if Jose Mourinho will still be there, but it's the team I always liked.

"I was close to Sunderland, I'd like to play in England in the future."
