Offer Made: Chelsea Ready to Hijack Roma’s Move For £34m Midfield Star

Chelsea are looking to beat Italian side Roma to the signing of highly-rated Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie, according to reports


The 20-year-old has been the top breakout star in Italy’s top flight this season, guiding Atalanta to a fantastic start to the campaign. The club from Bergamo have already cashed in on Mattia Caldara and Roberto Gagliardini, and Kessie was expected to be next.

The Blues had a verbal offer of up to £27 million for Kessie rejected by Gian Piero Gasperini’s side in January, but the Stamford Bridge club are keen not to miss out on their man this time around.

In January Kessie’s agent George Atangana told Calciomercato, “We have a lot of interest from the Premier League. Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal.”  

Although Roma have an agreement in place for the services of the Ivorian powerhouse, Antonio Conte’s man are looking to hijack the deal and will move in for him this summer, as per the Daily Star.

The report adds that the Premier League leaders will now send scouts to watch Kessie in action before opening up negotiations on a potential deal.


The highly-demanded midfielder, who is reportedly valued at around £34m, has scored six goals this season, creating 16 chances and four assists, he has also completed 829 passes with a pass accuracy of 84%, of which 70% were forward passes.
