Juventus are pushing hard to convince Franck Kessie of their plans as the Barcelona midfielder considers a move to Tottenham.
The 26-year-old Ivorian midfielder has struggled to really make an impression on Xavi in his first season, and could leave the club this summer. Juventus sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has left the club’s pre-season tour of the USA to ramp up the transfer market, and one of his main targets is Kessie. Discussions with the Blaugrana have been ongoing for several weeks. La Gazzetta dello Sport highlights how Juventus have been in close contact with Kessie in recent days to try and convince him of the project in Turin, aware that he’s currently leaning towards a move to Tottenham interested. The Bianconeri are looking to recruit the Ivorian midfielder on loan with an option to buy, a formula Barcelona are open to.
