According to The Daily Star, Chelsea will have to fork out a cool £34 million if they want to sign Franck Kessie from Atalanta.

This is a story that has gone on for some time this season thanks to the Ivorian’s meteoric rise to prominence since August.

Indeed, no-one had really heard of him until this campaign but thanks to his dynamic box-to-box displays and his club’s continued ability to punch above their weight in Serie A, plenty of people know who he is now.

Still in his early 20’s, too, Kessie really does have the world at his feet and Antonio Conte’s men will do well to be the only side involved in the race for his signature when the next window opens.

It’s likely he’ll partner N’Golo Kante in the Blues’ midfield and from what we’ve seen that would ensure they have a very formidable pairing.
