AC Milan midfielder, Franck Kessie seems to be under Liverpool's radar since the current economic conflict with AC Milan. The 24-year-old midfielder is reported to demand a raise to £5.1m-a-year from the present £1.9m-a-year in his contract with is set to expire in 12 months. Many suitors seem to be ready to grab the Ivory Coast international given his amazing career with the Serie A club since 2017.
Handicapped with Georginio Wijnaldum’s exit to PSG as a free agent, Liverpool can certainly benefit from Kessie to fill the spot at Anfield. Filling Wijnaldum’s shoes is not easy given his extraordinary 237 appearances over five years for the Reds and also the non-productive Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s £52.75m plus £35m deal was a bummer for Liverpool. Kessie is expected to aid the 4-3-3 formation of Klopp’s squad over Keita, Fabinho, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, and Curtis Jones.
