Inter Milan are reportedly interested in enquiring and attempting to sway Ivory Coast midfielder Frank Kessie away from his current club FC Barcelona amidst his rather low numbers in terms of minutes played for the Catalan side.
Following his free transfer to Barcelona in the recent summer transfer window, Frank Kessie was a promising signing given the levels he maintained in Serie A during his time with Italian side AC Milan.
However, in reality, he has not been given ample time on the field to showcase what he truly brings as a new dynamic to the Blaugrana outfit. Instead, the midfielder spends most of his time looking on from the bench or being mainly deployed as a substitute. This in turn has prompted numerous reports suggesting a move away from Spain in order to get more playing time.
Nerazzurri sporting director Piero Ausilio is reportedly the main individual who finds the profile of Frank Kessie as really potent and of a high level, having also held talks with the midfielder’s previous club, Atalanta, before his move to the Red end of Milan rather than Inter themselves.
Now forced to comply with a stricter budget, courtesy of financial problems having stricken the club, Inter will look to Kessie as a relatively cheaper alternative to bolster their upcoming squad.
On the contrary, other reports also suggest Frank Kessie would prefer to stay in Spain and end this season with the Catalan outfit as a priority. Moreover, his rather high wages also pose a problem for the financially troubled side from Milan, yet they will possibly continue to monitor the situation of the midfielder in order to find a possibility of making the signing a reality in the near future.
