AC Milan defensive midfielder Franck Kessie has reportedly emerged as a shock transfer target for Tottenham and Chelsea.

Ivory Coast international midfielder is currently in his second season at San Siro, and Kessie has already gone on to score eight goals in 71 games in all competitions.

However, AC Milan must make cutbacks to comply with FFP regulations, and that leaves open the possibility for Ivorian star being sold in the upcoming transfer window.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, both Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are keeping tabs on the situation and may be prepared to launch an approach for the 22-year-old player.

The report suggests that the Blues may hold an advantage, but, with Bakayoko already spending time on loan at San Siro for the rest of the season.

The Frenchman initially struggled at the Italian club. However, AC Milan could now potentially be interested in putting together a permanent deal for the former AS Monaco star after he starred in the club’s games over the Christmas period
