Following reports linking Franck Kessie to Inter Milan, Aston Villa, and Fulham among others, it is now being reported by credible journalist Fabrizio Romano and Mundo Deportivo that London-based club Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in the Ivorian midfielder.

Franck Kessie himself has already returned to Barcelona where he is continuing his recovery from a prior muscular injury and is being prepped to return against Espanyol on the 31st of December, the same timeline according to which the now recovering Ronald Araujo is also reportedly being set for.

Despite these recent transfer rumors, Kessie’s camp has made it clear that the midfielder is not looking to part ways with the Catalan club just yet and instead aims to make himself more of an integral part of the project through his own commitment and performances.

Having been at the club for almost half a year at this point, Kessie will look to impress Xavi further and indefinitely try his best to add more minutes to his rather low tally thus far, and seemingly does not want to go off to another potential suitor in the coming winter market.
