Chelsea target Kessie reaches agreement with AC Milan

According to Italian news outlet Calciomercato, AC Milan are on the verge of agreeing a deal with Chelsea target Franck Kessie.

Franck Kessie has managed to grab the attention from a host of top clubs due to his brilliant performances for Atalanta in the Serie A this season and Premier League giants Chelsea were believed to be one of the clubs very keen on signing the 20-year-old midfield sensation.

As a huge blow for Chelsea though, reports emerging out of Italy have claimed that AC Milan have won the race to secure the services of Kessie and that the Ivorian international is set to join the Italian outfit for a fee believed to be in the region of around £23.6million.
