Liverpool are reportedly putting together a contract for AC Milan star Franck Kessie, who has less than 12 months left on his current deal.
The article linked above states Liverpool are readying a £115,000 per week contract for Kessie, which is a huge upgrade on the reported £36,000 per week he’s on right now.
That being said, hopes the Reds could lure the Ivory Coast international took a hit as Fabrizio Romano revealed new contract talks are ongoing between the player and Milan.
Kessie has previously been touted as a replacement for Gini Wijnaldum for Liverpool – and while that makes some sense, the two midfielders aren’t all that similar.
The Milan man doesn’t have the creative flair the Dutch maestro boasts, but is generally more defensively sound. He’d be a great addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad, but it wouldn’t be like-for-like.
