Il Milanista take it a step further, reporting that Jurgen Klopp has identified Kessie as ‘an alternative’ for Fabinho.

That isn’t to say the Liverpool dynamo is going anywhere – the suggestion is the Milan midfielder would come in to provide depth and competition.

If true, it’s a positive move by the Reds, who have struggled with a relatively thin squad in recent years.

Franck Kessie has reportedly rejected a new Milan contract

Kessie will become a free agent next summer, unless he signs a new contract with Milan – which is still entirely possible.

If he fails to do so, he’ll be able to arrange a pre-contract agreement with another club and make a Bosman transfer in nine months.

But if Kessie was to enter the market on a ‘free’, there would be a large number of clubs banging on his agent’s door.
