Liverpool tracking 24-year-old with contract expiring in 2022; Serie A giants already looking for replacement – report

Posted by

Liverpool continue to track AC Milan star Franck Kessie, with the Italian outfit reportedly already searching for a potential replacement.

This comes from Mundo Deportivo, with numerous sides said to be keeping an eye on the Ivorian’s situation in Milan, as his contract remains set to expire in the summer of 2022.
