    Juve agree deal with Atalanta for Kessie

    According to Tuttosport, Juventus are about to secure the services of Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie. The journal claims that the bianconeri are ready to table a €20 million bid for the 19-year-old Ivorian and that they will tie up the deal in January with the player remaining in Bergamo for the rest of the current campaign.
    Kessie has been causing interest from all over Europe with Premier League champions Leicester City also known admirers of the youngster. Juve CEO Beppe Marotta has decided to speed up the process in light of this competition and although the bianconeri would have preferred to have waited until the summer to finalise the deal, a swift change of plan has seen the Serie A champions beat off the rest of the competition.
    Kessie arrived at Atalanta in 2015 from Stella Club but spent last season on-loan at Serie B side Cesena. Under the tutelage of new La Dea boss Gian Piero Gasperini, the youngster has been one of the stars of the new Serie A season.
