Barcelona midfielder Franck Kessie has recently been rumored for a possible move to the Premier League. The player seems to have lost his starting place in coach Xavi's team, and this has naturally paved the way for him to leave. Londoners Chelsea are among the teams interested in Kessie's services, as the blues are definitely looking for reinforcements in the midfield.
The new owner of Chelsea, the American Todd Boehly, has spent almost 200 million pounds this January market, bringing 6 new players to the team. However, it is learned that the leaders of the blues are still looking for a quality midfielder. Benfica's Argentinian, Enzo Fernandez, is Boehly's first choice, but the £100m-plus demand Benfica is asking for his services has made Chelsea think of a plan B.
Kessie's card costs much less, but the Spanish media indicate that the player is inclined to stay at Barcelona until the end of the season, especially if the Catalan club does not receive a big offer for him. Manager Xavi is believed to be looking to give Kessie a chance in the second half of the season, with the midfielder also looking to prove himself at Camp Nou.
According to the Spanish Onda Cero, Tottenham Hotspur is also interested in Franck Kessie, and the Londoners have made an offer for him, which is thought to be around 13 million pounds. However, Barcelona's response has been negative. In the event that Chelsea or Tottenham themselves come with a better offer, it is possible that the Spaniards will change their position until the end of the market. Especially considering Chelsea's need for midfielders, knowing Kante and Kovacic are still injured.
