Kessié’s agent to meet Milan amid Liverpool links

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Franck Kessié’s agent will meet Milan this week to discuss a new deal for his client.

Kessié sees his contract expire in June 2022 and the Rossoneri want to tie him down to a new contract to avoid see him leave as a free agent as Gigio Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu did.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports his agent George Atangana will meet the Rossoneri’s executives this week to discuss a new deal for his client.

Kessié earns €2.2m-a-year at San Siro, but his agent has demanded a new salary in the region of €6m.

There had been reports that Milan’s maximum offer would be €4m-a-year, but that was denied by the Rossoneri, according to the pink paper.

Scorer of 13 goals in 37 Serie A appearances last term, Kessié has attracted interest from many Premier League clubs, Liverpool in particular.

Kessié is currently on international duty as he’s been included in the Ivory Coast squad for the Tokyo Olympics.
