Juventus' plan to nab £17m Arsenal, Chelsea target Kessie'
01 December at 13:06
Juventus are doing everything in their power to sign Franck Kessie, according to reports.
The Arsenal and Chelsea target has had a brilliant start to the season with Atalanta, scoring five Serie A goals and adding one more assist, helping Atalanta climb to the European places.
While the Orobici have gone nine straight games unbeaten (of which eight wins), they’re also set to cash in bigtime once Kessie’ is sold, with his price estimated in the €15-20 million range.
Juventus are looking to do the same thing they did with Rolando Mandragora last year - and which they also tried with Gianluca Lapadula and Gianluca Caprari: namely, buy a young talent in the winter and leave him with his parent club in order to further spread his wings.
This is a bit of a pity for Chelsea, who were planning to do the same thing before the Bianconeri butted in, according to reports.
